Estimating required disk space
The amount of disk space SolarWinds Virtualization Manager consumes depends on the size of your environment and the granularity of the data you are gathering.
Before configuring SolarWinds Virtualization Manager, use the disk sizing spreadsheet to determine how much disk space you need. This will help you ensure continuous data collection. After you know how much space to allocate, increase the size of virtual disk 2 (this is the disk which stores all data) and then reboot the virtual appliance.

Symptoms of running out disk space
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager stops collecting data when less than 1GB of storage space remains. If this happens, you will see No space left on device errors in the Application log.

Expanding the virtual disk 
If you are out of disk space, you must expand the size of the virtual disk to continue collecting data: 


  1. Increase the provisioned size of Hard disk 2 of the appliance.
    1. Log into your vSphere client.
    2. Select the SolarWinds Virtualization Manager appliance from the list on the left.
    3. Click Inventory > Virtual Machine > Edit Settings.
    4. Select Hard disk 2 from the Hardware list.
    5. Increase Provisioned Size to the desired size.
    6. Click OK.
  2. Restart the appliance virtual machine.
