Request For Virus Definitions to Be Moved to a Different Drive
We have an urgent need to have the ability to change where the definitions are stored in our Citrix Environment due to drive space filling up on our virtual C: disks. Please implment this idea in a future release. We had opened a case for this (04534209) Here are the details:
Citrix VM’s run on Virtual Disk (RAMCache) and do not have an physical storage. The RAMCache run in server memory and we are limited to 8GB. If that 8GB fills, it is as if the server runs out of drive space and it would Blue Screen.
SEP 12.1 made a change that only allowed definitions to be saved on the C: drive; in our case, this is our RAMCache. As the new definitions come in, they consume more RAMCache. In previous SEP 11 version we had the ability to put the SEP definitions on a persistent disk, vs. the RAMCache.
Because of this change in SEP 12 and how the RAMCache works, our drives are filling up faster than normal. To alleviate the RAMCache, the Citrix team has to reboot the Citrix servers; which we are now getting about 8 -9 days before a reboot is needed. In previous versions, we were able to get 3+ weeks before a reboot was needed.
Recommended creating a feature enhancement request. It is not possible to move definition content in SEP 12.1 to a different drive than C:\.
