This solution replies to:
- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x, 5.0.x, 5.2.x
- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x


The root partition increases up to 4Gb due to the files wtmp and wtmpx located in /var/log



The "Hardware Model" is probably set wrong or is not configured. This value is configureable in "Config" > "Box" > "Box Properties" > "Identification" on each specific appliance.

Also the "Hardware Model"´has to be set in the Network Configuration.
Configureable in "Config" > "Box" > "Network" > "Interfaces" on each specific appliance.


It is also possible to delete these files with the parameters below:

rm -f /var/log/wtmp

rm -f /var/log/wtmpx

If the files are only deleted, they will be re-created and increase again up to 4Gb, if the Soulution above is not carried out.
