Warning with size grew during save


l've just installed Networker agent on Oracle Linux and backup goes fine except for following folders:  /proc, /sys and /u01 
Logs indicates same type of warning: `/u01/xxx' size grew during save

I've found document below but I do not find logasm:

Any idea?

Thank you in advance for your support

what do you mean you can't find "logasm"? It is part of the various options that one can use and set in a directive. states "The UNIX man page and the NetWorker Command Reference Guide provides detailed information about directives in the nsr and nsr_directive commands."

you can also change the backup action "success threshold" to Warning (save sets that complete with warnings are reported as success with warnings) instead of the the default "Success". However be aware that that this effectively suppresses them "changed during save" warnings, which might be indicative also that for example open database files on a linux/unix system are ending up in the backup instead of having a proper directive in place that skips oracle/db2/sap or whatever DB files during a normal filesystem backup as a NW module should be used to make online backups of those kinda DB's...
