    We have SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP1.
    In every default installation of this SUSE build with even 100GB of space allocated to disk, space gets full in just 2-3 days automatically.

    Seems like snapshots are building continuously in SUSE and we are not able to find a solution to stop them.

    We tried below possible solutions :
    1) Uninstalled snapper plugin
    2) Removed snapper cron job files
    3) Deleted Snapshot files from .snapshot directory

    But still snapshots keeps generating and when we try to delete snapshot directory or its files, command stops working in SUSE machine like ls, cd, scp, etc. not even yast is not able to open.

    Can you please help in finding a solution to stop as well as remove these snapshots.

    Hi
    You need to configure the settings in the /etc/snapper/configs/root
    file, to reduce the snapshot number. If your installing a file here and
    a file there on the system, then yes snapshots build up.

    Deleting the cronjob is not the right thing to do, you need to manually
    run so it will cleanup, also ensure the btrfs maintenance tools are
    installed and run the weekly cronjob to balance btrfs filesystem.

    Manual deletion of snapshots may break the system (esp 0 and 1) if you
    don't use the tools provided to cleanup the snapshots.

    Your not running something like a database etc on btrfs? If so this
    should be off on it's own (xfs) partition.

    Is this really a power system?

    Yes this is powerSystem 8.

    So deleting these snapshots using Yast is safe?
    And is there any specific snapshot we should not even touch while cleanup ?

    Hi
    The first two, if you run the command from a terminal (as root user);
    Code:
    snapper list
    You should see 'Current' and 'first root filesystem' don't remove
    those.

    But running the cron job /etc/cron.daily/suse.de-snapper and
    then /etc/cron.weekly/btrfs-balance should clean things up with using
    the YaST tool, as long as you have configured the snapshot
    Timeline and Number in the config file.
