IT19465: USING SFTP ON A LOGTARGET COULD LEAD TO A DISK SPACE PROBLEM

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using SFTP e.g. on a LogTarget, the encrypted space might
    be completely used up, by an internal file (sshprocess.stderr)
    which increases constantly, until "Free encrypted space:" is 0.
    
    This situation in turn can lead to serious issues with the
    functionality of your DataPower services.
    
    
    To check that you're not affected by this issue, perform the
    "show filesystem" cli command and check the available "free
    encrypted space" occasionally to ensure that this will not
    decrease significantly.
    

Local fix

  • A rollback to a previous working release might help.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is use of SFTP in DataPower, e.g. on a LogTarget.
    
    DataPower encrypted space might be completely used up.
