Hi Guys

We have just begun using Kerio workspace on a single project to test it's viability.

A few days ago, the machine it was running on reported that it's startup disk was full....which it in fact was!

It is a mac mini server (10.6.Cool and we use this machine as an Open Directory server and an AFP file server. We thought it would be an appropriate test machine for workspace.

The disks are mirrored (2 x 500GB) and then we have 2 partitions, one for the system and the other for files. the AFP server stores it's files on the 'file' partition and kerio workspace uses the files partition to store it's files also.

When the problem occurred, the start-up disk reported zero kb available and the file partition reported only 12GB available (when there should have been 120GB). Checking on the activity monitor the jsvc process was churning up most of the CPU time.... so i think there was something kerio related not behaving correctly.

When i cleared space on the system drive (i deleted 1GB of old files)...it started to use that space up...about 100MB every 10 secs....

When i rebooted the server, it seemed to behave for a while and then started to use up the space on the system disk again.... so one more reboot and it seems to have resolved itself.

So it has 'given back' the space on the files partition (so i have 120GB back) and a little bit of space on the system partition.

I can only assume this was a log file filling up or some temp cache?

Has anyone seen this before?

FWIW our kerio workspace files only have around 200MB of files stored in it...so we are no where NEAR where the 10GB limit kicks in (we haven't purchased a license yet as we are still testing) so originally i thought perhaps it was to do with the users filling the server up...but not the case!

So does anyone have any idea what this could be? Or how do i stop this happening again?

Once again, thnx so much for any and all suggestions.

ciao

Hi nunz,

I haven't seen something like what you described before.

If this happens again, please try to determine which folder is growing

~/kerio/workspace/logs
~/kerio/workspace//store

Are you synchronizing folders from client workstations using the File Library Manager client?

Thnx Ernesto

I was away on holidays when it happened, so i don't know for sure who was doing what when it happened...but i'll keep an eye out!

However, i'm sure no one was using the file manager client...as i haven't shown them how to use it yet!

thnx for your response and i'll check the logs.

ciao

Hi Nunz,

I have exactly the same behavior. Did you find any trigger that fills the disk?

Regards.

Hi Frank

No i haven't found the culprit... but it seems to be a log file. Re-booting the machine clears it out and gets the space back in our case.

Stopping and re-starting the kerio service does'n seem to have the same effect though.

Have stopped looking into it as we need to move OFF this platform...since the EOL'd it...such a pity!

ciao and good luck!
