Palo Alto Data Connector failing on storage

Frequent Contributor

Hi All,

Has anyone else deployed a Log Collector for Palo Alto only to find that it runs out of storage - it's almost like the "Log Collector" itself is not trimming the logs after being parsed thru?


This is an OnPrem Linux unit


Command from Log Collector blade

sudo wget -O python xxxxxxxxxxxxx-==

@David Caddick have you tried the troubleshooter?  I think it now advises on disk space issues

@David Caddick 

There are two places that you define this depending on the Operating system


In the rsyslog.conf file you will see a line like this

*.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/syslog

*.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/messages

Or in the /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf

*.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/syslog

*.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/messages


The fix is to put a # in front of the line and restart the rsyslog server


Systemctl restart rsyslog


The local file should stop growing


tail -f /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages

Thanks @Roger_Fleming@CliveWatson,


Great info, thanks for that and I'll report back how we progress on getting this resolved
