We are starting to use Compliance (CIS Checks) and we ran the “All Catalina - Deploy and Run Security Checklist - Darwin 10.15” fixlet on our Mac OS X 10.15 Machines. Although many machines completed the scan successfully, over a dozen of them had massive files locally afterwards. One example is a file named “find.out” that is 135Gb under Library/Application Support/BigFix/BES Agent/_BESData/CIS Checklist for MAC OS X 10/SCM/mytmp/data/1.
Others had files much larger, and 1 systems had a file over a Terabyte.
Documentation online states that:
“the fixlet, it runs a set of scripts. Each script detects a setting or condition and then writes the information to an output file that is made available to the corresponding fixlet check for evaluation. When the log files are written to disk, the fixlets read each log file and display the results in the console.”
Has anyone run into a problem with excessively large files being generated by this fixlet on the endpoints, and maybe discovered a way around it?
