Is this a change in behavior (post-upgrade), or is this a new installation?
See here: Remove Unneeded Files
One option to cleanup log files on a periodic basis is to do the following:
REM Zip up and archive the logs to a file share
REM Removes http session requests
REM removes all Tableau Server log files
We upgraded long back, we are currently in 10.2.4
We do maintenance every weekend by running cleanup -restart.
This seems very new to us, even though earlier we faced something similar which was caused by memory usage which vizqlserver crashing and creating huge dump files.
is there a change in usage? Or look for .dmp files to see if these are taking up space.
There's no change in the usage, also I found no .dmp files on D drive.
Also I'm not able to open the files that are more than 500 KB
I syour Tableau server running on a Windows OS.
If so can you check your pagefile.sys file.
Yes we are running our application on Windows server 2008, I see the page file usage is normal.
Maybe you have just reached the point where all the workbook revision history has caught up and saturated the disk space. By default there is no version history limit unless it is turned on and a number is specified.
Thank you for sharing this link, this one got so many useful information for us.
