Configuring Space Check for Software Installation and System Directories

Additional settings can be configured to check space requirements, generate events, set time intervals, and set thresholds. By default, Space Check monitors the directories according to the following schedule:

  • Every six hours on the CommServe machine
  • Once per day on the remote machines
  • Whenever services are started on any of the computers within the CommCell

If the disk space is less than 75 MB, no new jobs are initiated and no new phases are started for running jobs. If the free space is less than 25 MB, all of the existing jobs are killed by the system. The Disk Space Low alert is generated when the threshold level falls below the critical severity level. For information on creating notifications for the Disk Space Low alert, see Configuring Alerts for Low Disk Space.

Use the following additional settings to configure space check for software installation and system directories:

Additional Settings

Purpose

bCHECK_GALAXY

Checks the space requirements for software installation and system directories.

bCHECK_SYSTEM

Checks the space requirements for system directories such as %TEMP% for Windows and tmp or var for UNIX.

bCHECK_AUTOUPDATES

Every 24 hours, the CVD service contacts the Automatic Updates download server to check if the CommServe Cache is up-to-date. If you configured your CommCell environment to install updates automatically, but some updates are missing, the missing updates will be downloaded automatically to the CommServe Cache.

bUSE_EVENTS

Generates events in the Event Viewer.

nMACHINE_MAINT_INTERVAL_MINUTES

Sets the time interval to check disk space, available updates, available service packs and required upgrades. When this additional setting is created or its value is changed, CVD must be recycled on the client before the new interval starts. When CVD service is recycled, the configured interval is restarted from zero.

nGALAXY_MIN

Sets the threshold for minimum space available in the drive for installing software.

nGALAXY_MAX

Sets the threshold for maximum space that should be consumed in the software installation directory.

nGALAXYTEMP_MIN

Sets the threshold for minimum space available in the drive where software Temp directory resides.

nGALAXYTEMP_MAX

Sets the threshold for maximum space that should be consumed in the software Temp directory.

nSYSTEMP_MIN

Sets the threshold for minimum space available in the drive where system Temp directory resides.

nSYSTEMP_MAX

Sets the threshold for maximum space that should be consumed in the system Temp directory.

nJOBRESULTS_MAX

Sets the threshold for maximum space that should be consumed in the JobResults directory. This additional setting is used to set alerts when space used crosses the limit specified by this key. This does not limit the actual size of JobResults directory.

nIDA_MIN

Sets the threshold for minimum space available on the drive where the iDataAgent directory resides.

nIDA_MAX

Sets the threshold for maximum space that should be consumed in the iDataAgent directory.

nSYSVAR_MIN

Sets the threshold for minimum space available in the var volume on a UNIX computer.

nSYSVAR_MAX

Sets the threshold for maximum space that should be consumed in the var volume on a UNIX computer.

Use the following steps to configure any of the above additional settings:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to the Client Computers node.
  2. Right-click the <Client>, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Client Computer Properties dialog box, click Advanced.
  4. Click the Additional Settings tab and then click Add.
  5. In the Name box, type the name of the additional setting. The Category and Type details will be automatically populated.

    Alternatively, you can click Lookup and search for the additional setting using the Find box.

  6. Type the interval in minutes in the Value box (the default interval is initially displayed).
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click OK to save the additional setting configuration.
