- To view the state storage statistics, go to System > Status > Overview > Page Settings:
- Under Advanced Status, enable the State Storage in the Display Status section and click Save Changes.
- The System Status Overview page will now report the State Storage values which are listed just above the Logging Disk percentage:
The state storage is the combination of both
user.cfg. When this option is enabled on the overview page, the administrator will see the cache (combined
user.cfg) and the number of persistent user records.
If state storage is constantly increasing, please refer to [KB26336] - [PCS/MAG PCS] The state storage percentage on the device is high and increases and impacts the performance of the device to help decrease the size of the cache.
Note: No action is required as long as the state storage and/or fragmentation percentages are less than 40% and/or are not increasing daily. When these values are under 40% the data on the hard drive is not fragmented and the state storage level is acceptable. Performance issues only arise once these levels go above 50%.
: The Page Settings option is not available in the new admin UI, the admin will need to switch to Classic UI to display State Storage. After saving and switching back to the New UI the state storage value will be displayed in the new UI.
