Introduction:

In our current install guide, we call out a minimum space requirement for /tmp of 2g.

In the next release, this will be increased to 4g.

 

If you cannot allocate that space to /tmp, here is a workaround that will allow you to change the tempdir for CAPC.

Environment:
CAPC 2.7 and up.
Instructions:

After the install has finished, stop the services (they start automatically)

And then you may edit each of the following files:

/disk/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/DM/conf/wrapper-user.conf

/disk/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/EM/conf/wrapper-user.conf

/disk/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/PC/conf/wrapper-user.conf

/disk/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/sso/conf/wrapper-user.conf

***

Add this entry, pointing to your new tempdir.

The directory used in the files must exist.

wrapper.java.additional.33=-Djava.io.tmpdir=<new tempdir of choice>

 

restart all services.

You are now using the new tempdir.

Additional Information:

You can ignore the nonfatalerror for ribcache during install.

 

This is caused by low space in /tmp.
