Hi @hadoopNoob,

 

Your agent directory is in a disck with few memory, you need to move the directory to another unit with more space memory.

 

You need to change the path in the configuration file. Usually located in /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini

 

Then, restart the agent, service cloudera-scm-agent restart.

 

Regards,

Manu.

@hadoopNoob,

 

In order to address this issue, you will need to free up space in /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process.

 

To do so, we need to know much space each process directorty is taking and also how old they are.

You can try listing the directories in order of size with a command like:

 

du -h --max-depth=1 /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process | sort -h

 

It is OK to delete directories in /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process provided that process directory is not used for a running process.

 

/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process is where the configuration for any role you are starting resides, so if you run out of space, you will not be able to start processes on that host.
