This page provides instructions for InfiniMetrics versions earlier than 2.2
The InfiniMetrics virtual appliance requires, by default, a 30GB virtual hard disk that suits most environments.
For large environments (multiple InfiniBox systems with many monitored counters), more capacity might be required.
The following guide explains how to add extra capacity to an existing InfiniMetrics system and how to migrate the data to that added capacity.
- Using VMware VI client or VMware web client add additional Hard Disk to the InfiniMetrics VM with the required capacity
- SSH to the InfiniMetrics VM as root, password is nfinidat1
Rescan the added disk:
Create a new partition:
fdisk /dev/sdb ,type n enter, p enter, 1 enter, enter,enter, w enter (see example below)
Create a filesystem:
Create a mount point:
Note the new disk UUID:
Add an entry to the filesystem table (use the UUID returned at step 7)
Mount the new filesystem:
Verify that the added capacity mounted correctly:
Stop InfiniMetrics services:
Verify that the
postgresqlservice is down: (if not, repeat the
service postgresql stopcommand)
Migrate the InfiniMetrics Data to the new FileSystem:
Create a symbolic link to the new data:
Reboot the InfiniMetrics
- Wait until the InfiniMetrics finishes to boot and verify that it is working as expected
