intermittently error " There is not enough space on the disk."

While running reports on the jasper server, we intermittently get the error " There is not enough space on the disk.".

But the report is small (few pages), and there is 12GB free disk space on C:, and >100GB disk space on D:.

When we try to run the same report.again minutes later, the suddenly it works.

What could be the cause for this?

Unfortunatly, we don't know where jasper server stores temporary files. Where is this configured, or rather is ther a default for this?

Our jasper server version is 3.7.0 on windows server 2003.

Thank you for your support!

Which application server are you using? Do you have quotas enabled on your Windows Server?

1 Answer:

When a JasperReport is run, there is virtualization of various pages etc. to disk to conserve memory.  The default location where these files go is defined by the property for your JVM.  You could set this in the startup of java/websphere to a place where there is plenty of space.

You are on a fairly old version (3 years old) and could be running up against an issue that once existed where the temporary files were not getting cleaned up as they should.  Upgrading to the latest version will likely help with this issue as well as give you access to the many other things that have been built into the server in the past 3 years.
