Question
When does the disk cleanup script execute?

Environment
  • PAN-OS 7.1 and above.
  • Any Palo Alto Firewall.


Answer
The disk cleanup script is automatically run when the disk space on the root directory of the firewall reaches 95% or above. This script will clean up the disk space on the firewall and will stop when the disk space reaches 92% or below. 

The system log will generate an event for this event.

system log:
Disk usage for / exceeds limit, 95 percent in use, cleaning filesystem
