High disk space utilization-paloaltonetworks-panos

Vendor: paloaltonetworks

OS: panos

Description:
Many systems store vital configuration and operational data on their " +
"storage devices at different mount points and on different " +
"disk devices. It is important to monitor the usage of the " +
"different storage devices to ensure they do not fill up and " +
"cause issues in the on-going operation of the system.

Remediation Steps:
Determine the cause for the high disk usage of the listed file systems.
||Review https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Management-Articles/How-and-When-to-Clear-Disk-Space-on-the-Palo-Alto-Networks/ta-p/55736 and https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/tkb/articleprintpage/tkb-id/FeaturedArticles/article-id/89",

How does this work?
This alert uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current utilization of the different disks and mount points (the equivelant of using the “show system disk-space” command).

Why is this important?
Each device has multiple disk sections, or even separate disks. If any of those fill up, device stability may be impacted. Most mount points available in Palo Alto Networks firewalls have an auto-cleanup feature. Some do not, and require constant monitoring.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator will use the CLI to retrieve the storage utilization, normally once an issue occurs.
