Overview: Managing disk space for hosted content files

By default, the BIG-IP® system allocates 512 MB of disk space to the sandbox for storing hosted content files. If disk space becomes exhausted when you try to upload a hosted content file, an error displays. You can increase the amount of disk space allocated to the sandbox to the maximum of 1024 MB, in addition to deleting any hosted content that you no longer need.

Allocating the maximum amount of disk space for hosted content

You can specify the amount of disk space allocated for hosted content using a database variable.
Note: The maximum supported disk space is 1024 MB.
  1. Log on to the BIG-IP® system command line and type tmsh .
  2. Type this command sequence sys db .
  3. To view the amount of space currently allocated for hosted content, type this command sequence list total.sandbox.size value .
  4. To specify the amount of disk space allocated for hosted content:
    1. Type this command sequence modify total.sandbox.size value .
      This prompt displays. Values: [enter integer value min:64 max:1024]
    2. Type a value and press Enter.

Estimating hosted content file disk space usage

To estimate how much disk space hosted content files consume, you can display the sizes of the files in the sandbox from the command line.
  1. Log on to the BIG-IP® system command line and type tmsh .
  2. Type this command sequence apm resource sandbox list files | grep size .
    File sizes display.
                        
           size 397325
           size 752662
