Hello, I use CA Arcserv Replication version 15.2 (the previous name is Xosoft) and I have scenario with 80GB of replicated data, now on master host I have a directory named /collector1 with 16263 files and now I have only a few GB of free space, my question if I can delete all files in /collector directory ?
In my scanario the synchronization the spool is at 78%.
Thanks.

RHA XOMF driver  stores all online changes using the XOMF driver to the collector1 folder.   From collector1 it is moved to the spool folder for a given scenario.  

If the scenario is running you cannot delete the data from collector1 folder.      If the scenario is stopped and the data remains in collector1 folder it can be deleted.

78% of spool space on master being used could indicate change rate of master is greater than the bandwidth available for synchronization.

The suggestion would be as a follows:

1.       Stop All running scenarios.
2.       Stop CA ARCserve RHA engines on Master and Replica.
3.       Delete the Program Files\CA\ARCserve RHA\Engine\Config_25000 folder on master and replica.
4.       Delete contents of spool folder (Default path is Program Files\CA\ARCserve RHA\Engine\tmp)
5.       Make sure AV Scanning is excluded from the spool folder on master and replica.
6.       Start CA ARCserve RHA engines on Master and Replica.
7.       Start all Scenarios.
8.       If spool growth grows to the point where the scenario stops before synchronization completes (due to spool overflow on master) you will need to open a support issue to see if your TCP tunings can be optimized or if the link does not have enough bandwidth for the change rate.
