Managing Disk Space for Hosted Content

Overview: Managing disk space for hosted content files

By default, the BIG-IP® system allocates 512 MB of disk space to the sandbox for storing hosted content files. If disk space becomes exhausted when you try to upload a hosted content file, an error displays. You can increase the amount of disk space allocated to the sandbox to the maximum of 1024 MB, in addition to deleting any hosted content that you no longer need.
