Recently I discovered that our Icinga2 installation was eating a lot of diskspace. After checking with ncdu I discovered that the /var/spool/icinga2/perfdata was almost 78GB.
After reading some forum threads I discovered that the perfdata feature isn’t always required. How to tell if it’s required or not? I’m using icinga2 with icinga2web with influxdb integration and grafana. The documentation doesn’t seem to mention it anywhere specifically to require it, but want ot be sure before turning it off
Disabled features: command compatlog debuglog elasticsearch gelf livestatus opentsdb statusdata syslog
Enabled features: api checker graphite ido-mysql influxdb mainlog notification perfdata
Used web modules: businessprocess, director, grafana, idoreports, incubator, ipl, monitoring, pdfexport, reactbundle, reporting, vspheredb
Is there an alternative (safe) way to clean these logs? Is it OK if you just manually delete these log files?
