Opened: Apr 16, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

-- The folder /var/avr/loader contains many files (e.g., more than 1500 files). -- monpd is not running.

Impact

AVR writes many files to /var/avr/loader. Depending on disk usage, this might cause disk-usage problems.

Conditions

This occurs when the following conditions are met: -- Avrd is running. -- monpd is down.

Workaround

There are two possible workarounds: -- Restart monpd. When monpd starts up, it deletes the files under /var/avr/loader. -- Delete all files under /var/avr/loader.

Fix Information

There is now a limit for the /var/avr/loader folder, so that it can contain no more than 1100 files. This prevents disk-usage problems.
