  3. Commish logs can take up a large amount of space. If more than 10GB used, check size of commish log folder with the following command:
    • du -shc /var/log/commish
  4. If commish log are what is leading to the large amount of drive space being used, clear out logs with the following command:
    • sudo rm -rfv /var/log/commish/*
      NOTE: Only delete commish logging, any other logs that may need to be deleted needs to be done by Engi​neering
    • NOTE: If at rev11 or newer, commish should not log unless it is turned on. Existing logs should be deleted during update process.
  5. Contact Technical Support if the /dev/sda1 still has more than 10G in it.
