Hi Team,

We often come across scenarios wherein workflows are getting in error state with the log 'no free disk space available'. After checking the database usage of the workflows we came to know that the workflows were not cleaned up (i.e their temp tables were not dropped and which was occupying unnecessary database space).

After looking into the workflows we came to know that, scheduled workflows terminated with end activity didn't appeared in the database usage list while others with no end activity had used the database space.

Please let me know whether adding end activity to the workflows will solve the 'no free disk space issue', or do we need to optimize the workflow design as well.

Currently the ACM v6.1 documentation does not give much in depth detail on end activity, it will be very helpful if you can give more insights on the same.

with regards,

Richa Chaubey

Hi Richa,

Adhiyan has explained it well and it should resolve DB space issue. Can you please check "keep the result of interim population between two executions" is not checked for these scheduled/ Signal workflows. Also, all paths in your workflow has an end activity.
