In vRealize Network Insight, you can add additional disk space to a vRealize Network Insight Platform or Collector node.
Ensure that the nodes are in the power-on state, and you have the correct privileges.
- Log in to VMware vCenter using the web client with correct privileges.
- Right-click the VM, and click Edit Settings.
- Add a disk of required size.
A cron job runs every 5 minutes and checks for any new disks added to the VM, then automatically expands the required partition.
What to do next
Wait for 10-15 minutes for vRealize Network Insight to detect the disk, and then check and ensure that the additional disk size is visible in the /var partition.
In case troubleshooting is required, the cron job script location is: /home/ubuntu/build-target/common-utils/cron.5m/run-expandpart.sh. You can find the related log file at /home/ubuntu/logs/disk_util.log.
