Warning: Insufficient disk space

An "Insufficient Disk Space" warning indicates that the computer where the Deep Security Agent or Appliance is running is low on disk space and may not be able to store more events. If you open the warning to display its details, it will show you the location of the agent or appliance, how much free space is left, and how much is required by the agent or appliance.

To fix this issue, check the drive or file system that's affected and clear anything you can.

The agent or appliance will continue to protect your instance even if the drive is out of space; however, it will stop recording events.


  • Even though the warning is generated by the Deep Security Agent or Appliance, another program that shares the same file system could be causing the space issue.
  • Deep Security Agent automatically truncates and rotates its log files during normal operation. (This truncation and rotation is not related to issues with low disk space.)
  • Deep Security Agent will clean up its own log files, but not those of other applications.
  • Deep Security Manager does not automatically clear the "Insufficient Disk Space" warnings, but you can manually clear them from Deep Security Manager.
