The following describes how to prevent disk space from filling up.


One Identity highly recommends this if One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) is hosted in a virtual environment.

To prevent disk space from filling up

  1. Navigate to Basic Settings > Management > Disk space fill-up prevention.

    Figure 54: Basic Settings > Management > Disk space fill-up prevention — Preventing disk space fill-up

  2. Enter the limit of maximum disk utilization in percents in the Disconnect clients when disks are: x percent used field. Make sure to enter a value between 50-98 percent. When disk space is used above the configured limit, SPS disconnects all clients. The default value is 80.

  3. (Optional) To automatically start all configured archiving/cleanup jobs when disk usage goes over the limit, select the Automatically start archiving option.

    For more information on configuring an archiving policy, see Archiving and cleanup.


    If there is no archiving policy configured, selecting this option will not trigger automatic archiving.

  4. Click Commit.

  5. Navigate to Basic Settings > Alerting & Monitoring > Health monitoring and enable alert Disk utilization maximum.

  6. Click Commit.
