ql_ima log on ESXi filling up /tmp

Kassim Ismail

Hi All,

 

anyone come across a ql_ima.log file that fills up the /tmp folder on ESXi 5.5? we are running B200 M3 blades with Cisco ViC 1240. 

a quick search on the internet points to users having to update the qlogic driver to fix the issue. if we delete the file, it re-creates it. we dont have a qlogic card in the blade & correct my if i am wrong, but the 1240 would not use a qlogic driver?

 

any ideas on this?

Thanks

Kass

did you find a solution to this?

 

thanks

 

Hi,

i dont think we found a fix for this, but i will check with my colleague tomorrow who dealt in our team & see if he remembers if there was a fix.

 

Thanks

Hi,

I believe these are the articles and the commands we ran to fix our issue:

http://wp.alphaparallel.com/2013/10/vmware-esxi-ram-disk-full-due-to-adaptecs-arcconf-bug/

https://communities.vmware.com/message/2353116

http://www.vdsyn.com/recovering-space-left-device-esxi/

 

 

esxcli system visorfs ramdisk list

 

tmp folder is full

 

rename the tmp folder

 

mv/tmp tmp.old

 

mkdir /tmp

 

hope this helps.

Anyone find a proper fix for this? Which driver would this be caused by on the B200 M3 and has anyone successfully stopped this from filling up the /tmp by updating the driver?

 

Or is it fixed in a certain ESXi version?

Hi All,

we seem to have a fix for the ql_ima.log issue. i got in touch with TAC & they advised updating the qlogic driver for our version of ESXi & it has fixed the issue. we are no longer seeing the ql_ima.log being created on the host we applied the fix to. we are rolling this out to other hosts now.

the info from TAC is as follows:

"

Per our conversation there has been some issues with the inbox driver, updating to the following qlogic driver should resolve the ql_ima.log issues even though this driver is not actually in use by any devices on the blade:

The instructions are in the zip file under DOC/Readme.  Let me know if you have any questions.

"

hope this helps.

which of these vibs did you install? did you install all?

Hi,

i installed:

"

qla4xxx-634.55.28.0-offline_bundle-1682448.zip
