NetSight Server Running Out Of Space


Userlevel 5
Have been seeing recently a fair few NetSights falling over because they are running out of space, and they typically also run Purview.

What seems unusual for me is that I am seeing the NetSight MySQL backups being rather large, 5-7Gb, well, larger then I am used to seeing them.

So with a DB that big its quite easy to fill up 100Gb hard drive with a few historic backups on top of all the other files.

At first I thought it might be because they have a lot of historic reporting configured, but in each case this has been turned off and made no difference.

The reason I think is could be to do with Purview are there are a lot of files like this:

-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 40M Aug 21 01:00 application_usage_default#P#pre_20150822.ibd

-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 40M Nov 20 00:00 application_usage_hr_default#P#pre_20151120.ibd

Which are not too big on there own, but there are a lot of them.

Is this behaviour normal, and its just simply that they need a bigger hard-drive, or does there look something wrong on the surface?

Many thanks in advance.

Looks fairly normal, when I compare to mine. It's definitely purview.
My Reporting DB backups are 36 gigs 🙂

There are some instructions to increase your disk space if you have a VM.
https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/How-to-increase-disk-space-in-NetSight-VM/

If you've done some upgrades to Netsight there is a hidden installer folder that can be used to downgrade in case something went bad. I usually only keep current folder, and the others I'll delete. Each of these hidden backups has a copy of the DB as well that can chew up space.

Hi Frank,

Thanks for getting back to me.

Kind of a relief it looks normal, and will definitely try the tip about the hidden installer folder.

Wondering if the problem is that Purview is being bolted on to existing NetSights without realisation in the additional capacity its requiring, which leads me on to my next question.

NetSight details the free disk space as required is:

  • Small = 10GB
  • Medium = 40GB
  • Large = 100GB
  • Enterprise = >100GB
So I've always wondered in size, perhaps amount of switches, what constitutes these different sizes?

With the addition of Purview these sizes might no longer be adequate, so a network that you may have defined as medium or large are now quickly running out of space.

If you have any guidance on what the recommended disk sizes should be.

Thanks.

There are some KB articles about this topic...

The "Additional notes" in this one are hard to read/unterstand - at least for me...

Hi,

Thanks for answering and for the links....

If I read into those articles right its basically saying the recommendations for NetSight with the addition of Purview is to scale NetSight for Enterprise mode, which means it should be run on Linux with around about this spec:

(2) XEON E5-2620 CPUs (24 cores), dual 1TB hard drives with RAID controller, 24GB RAM

Would that be right!

Many thanks,

Martin

I'd also prefer to have that information in the release notes and not in some "hidden" KB entry.

I'll open a ticket and link to this post.....

update GTAC: We put the request in for you. This case will be closed.

Let's wait for the 7.0 release notes - if the notes are not included I'll reopen the ticket.

I believe release 7 might be out now on early release, not sure if you have access to this yet to check what the spec's might be for NetSight / ExtremeControl with Purview / ExtremeAnalytics.

Telling customers they need to spec 24 CPU's and 24GB Ram is a little hard to swallow, although this seems from the links only dependant if you have an Enterprise level installation. This might also be dependant on how many flows Purview / ExtremeAnalytics is spec'd for?!

So I'm still interested in what you would spec for the following NetSight / ExtremeControl sizes:

    Small Medium Large Enterprise
What quantifies these sizes?

How you would determine the amount of flows required for Purview / Extreme Analytics, as it would seem this then would determine your hardware and software / license specs.

Many thanks in advance.
