A 6.0 External PSC reports /storage/log 95% full. vDisk 5 for the PSC is 5GB
The workaround KBA 2143565 shows the default max files size as 100MB times 10 backups times 10 for the perflog. 100MB x 10 x 10 = apx 10GB (unofficial calculation). The workaround s 50MBx5x3.
If you want to keep the extra logs for support reasons, extend disk 5 to say 11GB, but the vpxd_servicecfg storage lvm autogrow command errors out. bash: vpxd_servicecfg: command not found
The command to extend works on a VCSA, but not an external PSC. If you are 6.0u2a, there is an official command to run lvm_cfg.sh as long as you chmod +x the script.
