Our root (/) partition is nearing 100% utilization and upon further investigation the wtmpx file is the main culprit. We need to trim or flush this file but we need to have a backup of this file for audit purposes.
In response from our last post regarding splitting of large files, we will now discuss on merging these files for us to be able to use it again. We will also be discussing on checking the md5 hash and chksum.
We have a very large core file and we need this to send to our vendor for analysis. The gzip’d file of the core is 20GB and the FTP server of the vendor does not like that. Therefore we need to split our very large file to smaller chunks that the FTP server would accept.
