Airwave backup size

Hi,

 

Our actual Airwave has 4+ year. We are running version 8.0.8.1 and the backup size (nightly_data001.tar.gz) are very large: 18GB.

The envirolment has 5 controllers and ~600 Access Points.

 

What we can do to decrease the size of this file? What files/old reports can be deleted via CLI.

 

 

Regards,

 Paulo R.

Re: Airwave backup size

Hi Paulo,

 

Below are couple of things which you could check,

 

* Number of days set for historical retention under Amp setup --> General page. We can tweek the days according to our requirement

 

* Check whether we are receiving syslogs from the controllers in debug mode. If we are we can change the logging level on the controller to error or warning from debug. Syslogs can be seen under System --> Syslogs & Traps tab on Airwave

 

* Check the output for below command from AIrwave CLI, which would show us the tables which are taking up more space

 

# dbsize

[ Edited ]

It mainly deals with the AppRF data. What is the GB size we have given for "AppRF Storage Allocated" under Amp Setup general page? For how many days we wish to store AppRF data on the server? Also, could you share the last tables which are showing up in the debsize output? Ones towards the end would be the top tables.

Re: Airwave backup size

ok..

 

We allocated 250GB.

The /var/airwave/rrd folder has more than 60GB.

I will reduce this value.

 

Thank you
