Question RHEL 5.3 : cma.log filling up too quickly, acquiring all the space in /var


Hi Guys,

cma.log in my RHEL 5.3 (Tikanga) machine is filling up too quickly and acquiring all the space of /var partition on my machine. Can anybody please advise a solution for the issue. Below is the message in the log:

Feb 15 00:37:23 stats1 cmahostd[5041]: ReadRegister: SMIFCMD_I2C_TRANSACTION failed
Feb 15 00:37:23 stats1 cmahostd[5041]: ReadRegister: SMIFCMD_I2C_TRANSACTION failed
Feb 15 00:37:23 stats1 cmahostd[5041]: ReadRegister: SMIFCMD_I2C_TRANSACTION failed
Feb 15 00:37:23 stats1 cmahostd[5041]: ReadRegister: SMIFCMD_I2C_TRANSACTION failed
Feb 15 00:37:23 stats1 cmahostd[5041]: ReadRegister: SMIFCMD_I2C_TRANSACTION failed
Feb 15 00:37:23 stats1 cmahostd[5041]: ReadRegister: SMIFCMD_I2C_TRANSACTION failed

path to the log is /var/log/hp-snmp-agents

snmp agent running on machine is hp-snmp-agents-8.3.0.27-26.rhel5
Its an hp blade server.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Zohaib.

A future release of the HP Management Agents for VMware ESX will prevent the error messages from occurring and filling the cma.log file. This advisory will be updated when more information becomes available.

The Insight Management Agents log rotation feature will prevent the file size from growing too large so the messages will not fill the hard drive. No action is necessary."

But in my case there is just one log of almost 2.0gb size now. it is not splitting into parts and increasing with every passing hour, consuming all the space on partition.
