Question
How to run cleanup script if root disk-space exceed 90%?

Environment
  • PAN-OS 8.1 and above.
  • Any Palo Alto Firewall.


Answer
By default the cleanup script will only run when root directory exceed 95%.This script can also be made to run when the disk space exceeds 90% by using the following command.

debug software disk-usage cleanup deep threshold <90-100>

Here 90-100 define percentage threshold of size of system partition to kick off the cleanup.
Running this command will result potential loss of debuggability due to deletion of debug logs.
 
Example below:
PA-220> show system disk-space

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root       3.8G  3.2G  386M  90% /                 
none            2.0G   60K  2.0G   1% /dev
/dev/mmcblk0p5   12G  2.8G  7.9G  27% /opt/pancfg
/dev/mmcblk0p6  3.8G  3.2G  386M  90% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs           2.0G  247M  1.8G  13% /dev/shm
cgroup_root     2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /cgroup
/dev/mmcblk0p8  4.6G  700M  3.7G  16% /opt/panlogs
/dev/loop0      111M  5.6M  100M   6% /opt/panlogs/wildfire/tmpfile
tmpfs            12M     0   12M   0% /opt/pancfg/mgmt/lcaas/ssl/private


PA-220> debug software disk-usage cleanup deep threshold 90
Done. root partition size 63% is below threshold

PA-220> show system disk-space

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root       3.8G  1.6G  2.0G  45% /                   <<
none            2.0G   60K  2.0G   1% /dev
/dev/mmcblk0p5   12G  2.8G  7.9G  27% /opt/pancfg
/dev/mmcblk0p6  3.8G  3.2G  386M  90% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs           2.0G  247M  1.8G  13% /dev/shm
cgroup_root     2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /cgroup
/dev/mmcblk0p8  4.6G  700M  3.7G  16% /opt/panlogs
/dev/loop0      111M  5.6M  100M   6% /opt/panlogs/wildfire/tmpfile
tmpfs            12M     0   12M   0% /opt/pancfg/mgmt/lcaas/ssl/private
