Verify there is sufficient free disk space on the SRM Profiler server before upgrading. There must be TWICE as much free space as the largest table in your database.

SRM Profiler versions 5.6 and newer use MariaDB. For previous versions, MySQL is used. For versions prior to 5.6, substitute MySQL for MariaDB

The database can be found at the following location:

  • Windows: <installed drive>\Program Files\SolarWinds\SRM Profiler Server\mariadb\data\storage directory
  • Linux: <installed path>/Storage_Manager_Server/mariadb/data/storage directory

This is the default location of where the temporary database tables are created.

Sort the files within the database subdirectory making note of the largest table (*.MYD) in the folder and remember there must be TWICE as much free space as the largest table in your database. SRM Profiler builds temporary database tables from the actual database. If you have insufficient disk space you must point the temporary database tables to a drive that has sufficient disk space.

To change the location of where the temporary database tables are stored, go to the following location:

  • Windows: <installed drive>:\Program Files\SolarWinds\SRM Profiler Server\mariadb
  • Linux: <installed path>/Storage_Manager_Server/mariadb

Using a text editor open the file called my.cnf. After the file is open, search for the string #tmpdir=. Remove the # (comment) and change it to a drive that has sufficient space.

Example: Changing to E:\ drive will look like tmpdir=E:\

Save the file and restart the mariadb service.

  • Windows: Restart the mariadb service via services.msc
  • Linux: Run the command /etc/init.d/storage_manager_server restart database
