Hello,

When the backup is performed, it occupies the partition /var up to 100%.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vgsystem1-lvvar 12G 12G 0 100% /var

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SYSTEM PARTITIONS

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 9.8G 5.2G 4.1G 57% /
udev 10M 0 10M 0% /dev
tmpfs 2.4G 4.0M 2.4G 1% /run
/dev/mapper/vgsystem1-lvos 9.8G 5.2G 4.1G 57% /
tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
tmpfs 4.8G 32K 4.8G 1% /run/shm
/dev/mapper/vgsystem1-lvvar 12G 12G 0 100% /var
/dev/mapper/vgsystem1-lvdata1 3.0T 927G 1.9T 33% /srv/data1
/dev/mapper/vgsystem1-lvdata1 3.0T 927G 1.9T 33% /home1
/dev/mapper/vgsystem1-lvdata1 3.0T 927G 1.9T 33% /home2

When the backup ends, the partition, goes to 50% occupied (normal occupation).

Is it possible to change the partition used temporarily, while the backup is being performed? If so where can we do that?

Hi,

During a backup VAL places a snapshot file somewhere locally. It seems that in your case /var has been selected automatically for snapshot file placement. You can check that if you search for 'snapshot data will be stored in' string in /var/log/veeam/veeamsvc.log.

If you would like to override the auto-choice logic and specify a different location, please follow these instructions.

If that that's not the case, then please open a support case so that our team could investigate what takes up the space.

Thanks!
