    • Hi Aponte

      you can use

      find /usr/sap/DAA/SMDA97/SMDAgent/*.gdl -mtime +5 -exec rm {} \;

      to delete the logs older than 5 days for a certain directory

      did you use du -ks * to find the biggest directory ?

      Best Regards

    Hi Carlos,

    I am not sure about the above files in /usr/sap/DAA/SMDA97/SMDAgent

    But perhaps, you can check if /usr/sap/trans can be shrinked in case you do not have /usr/sap/trans as a separate mount point and there is some scope to cleanup files.

    /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/ can be cleaned.

    /usr/sap/trans/tmp/ can be cleaned

    /usr/sap/trans/log/ can be cleaned, by purging the older logs.

    Regards,

    Akshay.

    Hello Carlos,

    If you are not using diagnostic agents then you can clear everything under DAA instance. Just stop the services for SMD agent (there will be a process running on unix servers) and you can clear everything related to solution manager diagnostic agent.

    SMD agents are mainly used for monitoring and can be installed independently later whenever required.

    You can also check if there are older kernel files on the server under /usr/sap. You can also clear older logs from "work" (usr/sap/SID/instance/work) directory and also older defaulttrace files (/usr/sap/SID/instance/j2ee/cluster/server0/log) to make up some space on the same.

    Hope this helps you in clearing some more space.

    Regards,

    Denish
