/shared disk usage growth and the diskmonitor can alarm when percent of disk usage reaches the configured threshold.


/shared filesystem can fill and cause alerting and inability to copy files such as .iso to /shared.


VCMP guest, overtime /shared/tmp/guestagentd.out grows and not rotated.


1. periodically delete the non-critical file /shared/tmp/guestagentd.out OR, 2. bigstart stop guestagentd (this will disable vcmp health feature on the host)

Fix Information

The guestagentd logs no longer fill the tmp file.
