Bug ID 1211233: F5OS dashboard in webUI displays the system root file system usage, not the entire disk

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
F5OS F5OS, Velos(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
F5OS-A 1.3.0, F5OS-A 1.3.1, F5OS-A 1.3.2, F5OS-C 1.6.0, F5OS-C 1.6.1, F5OS-C 1.6.2

Opened: Dec 20, 2022

Severity: 3-Major


The Dashboard page displays disk usage information that can be misleading. For example, on an r5900 the following information may be shown: Storage Capacity: 109.4GB System Storage Free: 89.1GB System Storage Used: 15% However, the storage capacity is a value taken from the root (/) filesystem. It does not represent the entire 800GB disk, and does not show information about the file systems where tenant images reside.


This is a cosmetic issue.


View Dashboard page in webUI.


Linux commands such as "df -hl -t ext4" will provide detailed information about disk usage. Another breakdown of the disk partition use can also be seen using "lsblk /dev/nvme0n1". Note that nvme0n1 is the physical disk of interest. Example from rSeries appliance: # lsblk /dev/nvme0n1 NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT nvme0n1 259:0 0 683.5G 0 disk |-nvme0n1p1 259:1 0 1G 0 part /boot/efi |-nvme0n1p2 259:2 0 1G 0 part /boot |-nvme0n1p3 259:3 0 455.3G 0 part | `-partition_tenant-root 253:2 0 455.3G 0 lvm /var/F5/system/cbip-disks |-nvme0n1p4 259:4 0 113.9G 0 part | `-vdo_vol 253:3 0 227.7G 0 vdo | `-partition_image-export_chassis 253:4 0 227.7G 0 lvm /var/export/chassis
