• chkspace complaining

    From Fratm@1:103/705 to All on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 08:54:23
    Greetings,

    So my inbox is getting loaded with messages from chkspace telling me I am low on space. I'm at 6% usage with 46Gigs of space available. What is it checking for, and what threshhold do I need to meet in order to shot this watchdog up? It would seem 46Gigs is plenty, and if it is looking at percentage, it should be happy with 94% available.

    Thanks,
    Fratm

    It's not based on percentage, but rather whatever value is set in SCFG->File Options->Min Bytes Free Disk Space (less than double this value will trigger chkspace to send a notification).

    This value was changed from kilobytes to bytes in v3.20 and chkspace.js was recently updated accordingly. Are you using the latest chkspace.js?

    The Value in there now is 100M Since I have 45Gigs it should not be triggering, right?

    This value was changed from kilobytes to bytes in v3.20 and chkspace.js was
    recently updated accordingly. Are you using the latest chkspace.js?

    I should be, I pulled lated from git on the 13th of March, when I started setting this board up (my bbs is new.)
    I just looked at the code and it says it is v 1.8, why would the version be included with the git pull?

    I just looked at the code on gitlab.synchro.net, that version number is in the newest too, but there were some differences between my copy and what was in the git repo, so I downloaded it and swapped it out, I will see if that fixes the issue.

    Thanks for the reply.

    If the script is the latest, correct.

    This value was changed from kilobytes to bytes in v3.20 and chkspace.js was

    13th of March... last year?

    You can ignore that revision number. That's a vestige from when we were using CVS for version control, before Git.

    You should be doing a "git pull" (or similar) to update *all* your exec/* files, not just downloading this one single file.

    Yes, I understand how git works, only been a sysadmin for 30 year ;) this was a quick and dirty test to see if that was the issue. I didn't want to wait for a backup to run before I could test it. Sometimes you break the rules to test shit out before you go to production.

    Thanks, and by the way, that was the issue.

    So, as a 30-year sysadmin, when it didn't work you figured the best
    approach was to ask "why?", instead of doing it properly (doing a full
    git update)? Hmmmmm...

    Any *good* 30-year sysadmin wouldn't do that.

    What a surprise!

    I think you're taking things out of context here Gamgee. Fratm didn't do a partial update and then ask "why?" (something wasn't working as expected). I just wanted to make sure they were aware of the suggested update practice, and they are. We're all good.

    of the suggested update practice, and they are. We're all good.

    Yes, I was a bit hasty there, and out of line. I guess it's just that
    the update process is well documented, and somehow some people still
    can't follow the directions. Kind of a pet peeve of mine, I guess.
    Sorry about that, I'll take it down a notch.
