SIEM HDD concerns


Were planning for a firmware upgrade on our SIEM and we noticed that both data_hd and index_hd are at 90% utilized. Would it be safe to proceed with the upgrade given these levels of HDD storage? What might be the implications if we proceed with the upgrade under these levels of utilization ?

Re: SIEM HDD concerns

This is perfectly normal. 90% is a good number for those drives. I would run the upgrade advisor and read the upgrade procedure and follow those steps.

Thank You,

/data_hd has now gone up to 95%, would it still be safe to perform the upgrade? Is there any documentation for the required free space for an upgrade?
