OverOps Backend Unreachable due to Full Disk Space on Database Server


Users are unable to access the OverOps backend caused by DB storage running out of disk due to MySQL binary log files.


OverOps Backend: all versions

MySQL DB server: 5.5, 5.6 or 5.7


Purge the MySQL binary log files from the DB storage.

To purge on a 100% full disk, one must either add additional space to the full disk or clear a few binary files in order to be able to perform a mass purge.


Binary log files are configured to be backed up or replicated onto the same disk where the database resides. If not purged on a regular basis, these files will take up all the disk space and therefore will make the DB server inaccessible.
