Description (partial)

The Virtual FTD distributions upgraded to the 6.6.1 software release may experience disk usage alerts some time after the upgrade because temporary run-time files are not removed from the /ngfw/var/sf directory after the 6.6.1 upgrade event until either the system is restarted or the disk usage manager process is restarted..

The Virtual FTD device may experience a disk usage warning after upgrading to the 6.6.1 software.

The conditions when this might occur is after an existing Virtual FTD unit is upgraded to the 6.6.1 release and the device is not restarted at all.  Due to a patch installation timing issue the disk usage manager process does not pick up the the /ngfw/var/sf directory to monitor and manage on the first try and files under this directory can grow unbounded until either the disk usage manager process is restarted.
