(Doc ID 1997178.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 18, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 4.0 to 4.3 [Release 4.0 to 4.3]
Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition - Version 4.0 to 4.3 [Release 4.0 to 4.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)


In a Solaris Cluster 4.x environment it was reported that filesystem (/var/cacao/instances/default/) is getting full. Checking the directory it was recognized that the file /var/cacao/instances/default/proc_scan.txt is quite big.

 If /var is part of / then also root filesystem full can occur.
