Bug ID 696191: AVR-related disk partitions can get full during upgrade

Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP AVR, Install/Upgrade(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
13.1.1,,,,, 13.1.3,

Fixed In:

Opened: Nov 26, 2017

Severity: 3-Major


Disk is full during upgrade preparation when Application Visibility and Reporting (AVR) data exported from the MySQL DB to the disk.


If /shared/avr and /shared/avr_afm are full, the upgrade could fail.


-- Upgrading from 13.1.x to a newer version. -- AVR is provisioned.


Delete all data from AVR DB before upgrade: touch /var/avr/init_avrdb bigstart restart monpd As the upgrade can cause the disk to fill, here is an alternative workaround: 1. Save UCS file for backup purposes. 2. Manually move the contents from /shared/avr to /shared/tmp/avr: -------- # mkdir /shared/tmp/avr # mv /shared/avr/* /shared/tmp/avr -------- 3. Delete /shared/tmp/avr and files under this directory and check whether disk usage for /shared/avr has come down.

Fix Information

AVR data compression has been introduced, single partition (/shared/avr) is used instead of two partitions (/shared/avr_afm, /shared/avr). As a result, a need for disk space is considerably reduced.
