About this task

InfiniMetrics is installed with a disk space of 30GB. As Infinimetrics gathers more InfiniBox data and the amount of stored data accumulates, there may be a need for more disk space. 

Past InfiniMetrics versions

  • Earlier versions of InfiniMetrics are no longer supported. Please upgrade InfiniMetrics to the latest release.


  • An up and running Infinimetrics appliance
  • Access rights to the virtual machine that hosts Infinimetrics


  1. On the console, stop services running on the virtual machine:

    service cron stop
    manage infinimetrics_services stop
    service postgresql stop
    service clickhouse-server stop
  2. On the vCenter, expand the disk space of the InfiniMetrics virtual machine.
  3. On the console, run the following command: 

    root@localhost:~# infinimetrics expand-disk

    The command's output is: 

    INFO: 2015-11-12 14:11:47,439 - found device holding postgres database: /dev/sda6
    INFO: 2015-11-12 14:11:47,485 - found extended partition /dev/sda2, going to resize it first
