BIG-IP AVR, Install/Upgrade
Known Affected Versions:
13.1.1, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 13.1.3, 22.214.171.124
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.
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.
