BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2, 12.1.2, 12.1.2 HF1, 12.1.2 HF2, 12.1.3, 12.1.3.1, 12.1.3.2, 12.1.3.3, 12.1.3.4, 12.1.3.5, 12.1.3.6, 12.1.3.7, 12.1.4, 13.0.0, 13.0.0 HF1, 13.0.0 HF2, 13.0.0 HF3, 13.0.1

Fixed In:
13.1.0

Opened: Feb 20, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

On large platforms, when you are logged into the console you see the following warning displayed frequently: "Disk partition /var/asmdata1 has less than 30% free"

Impact

Disk usage warning is displayed frequently. Since ASM will likely reach expected disk utilization of greater than 70% during normal operation on large platforms, the threshold is set too low.

Conditions

ASM is installed with large platform configuration (such as on 6900).

Workaround

Reduce the percentage at which disk monitor alerts for /var/asmdata1: tmsh modify sys db platform.diskmonitor.limitwarn.var_asmdata1 value 15 tmsh modify sys db platform.diskmonitor.limitalert.var_asmdata1 value 10

Fix Information

None
