I upgraded to 8.8.15 and had to reapply this fix, as well as the fixes for the log files mentioned earlier in the thread.

ponty wrote:Regarding the zmstat.out messages that are filling up your hard drive, "Use of uninitialized value $line in pattern match (m//) at /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-io line 76" ...

I'm not sure if this will break anything else, as I'm really not an expert. However, after reviewing the output of iostat that's ready by zmstat-io, (/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-io) I noticed that "Device" in the iostat output doesn't contain a ":" as it appears to be looking for in the script (Device:). So here's what I did--it at least stopped the messages from filling up the zmstat.out file that quickly fills up the hard drive:

login as zimbra and stop zmstat: zmstatctl stop
edit /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-io
replace all "Device:" with "Device" (in vi, put ":%s/Device:/Device/g" without quotes) and save.
delete the /opt/zimbra/zmstat/zmstat.log file that is probably huge.
restart zmstat: zmstatctl start
Offending, space-filling messages should be all gone!

I hope this helps. Let me know what you think.

Hi, thanks for the solution with growing of zmstat.out. But I have another one problem with 8.8.15GA and Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS amd64 - admin console doesn't see statistics of services running and guess that all of them all down.

zmcontrol status says that almost everything is okey but:

Code: Select all

zimbra@vm-zimbra12:~$ zmcontrol restart

        zimbraAdmin webapp      Running
        zimlet webapp           Running
        zmconfigd               Running

UPDATE: I have applied all patches from this thread but in adminConsole I still see no services running although in syslog everything is ok and in /opt/zimbra/logger there are now non-empty files with results of zmlogswatch working.
