Low Usable Disk Space – due to /boot partition

The Variphy Linux platform deploys a /boot partition for the operating system which contains all the boot files, kernels, etc.

Due to a current limitation in Variphy, email alerts are being triggered on the amount of drive space available for the /boot partition:

The issue is the HD Space Management Threshold on the /boot partition

Settings–>Application Settings:

The default auto-assigned Minimum Usable Threshold in GB is 2

The Variphy Linux deployment auto-assigns 266MB of storage to the /boot partition.

A 2GB threshold on the /boot partition of 266MB will never have an available 2GB of usable HD. The value cannot be lowered to 0.1; so to stop the email alerts on the /boot partition, the value will have to be zeroed out and saved.

The Variphy development team is swiftly working on a resolution to this /boot partition threshold limitation, and will be resolved soon.
