TSM log archives created under  /data/tabsvc/tabadmincontroller/0/ziplogs during a ziplogs operation are not removed after ziplogs operation completes or during tsm maintenance cleanup, and can take up a lot of storage space. 


  • Tableau Server 2018.2.0 - 2018.2.6, 2018.3.0 - 2018.3.3, 2019.1.1 on Windows
  • Tableau Server 2018.2.6, 2018.3.3, 2019.1.1 and earlier versions on Linux 


Option 1: 

Upgrade to Tableau Server 2018.2.7, 2018.3.4, 2019.1.2 or a newer version. 

Option 2:

The log archives under /data/tabsvc/tabadmincontroller/0/ziplogs may be manually removed as needed reclaim disk space.
