"Check Point Performance Sizing Utility..." message during a login to command line
Symptoms
  • Various messages from CPSizeMe during a login to command line on Gaia / SecurePlatform / IPSO OS.

    Examples:

    • Check Point Performance Sizing Utility v3.3 is running... Check: /home/admin/cpsizeme -S
    • Check Point Performance Sizing Utility v3.3 is done!... Please run: /home/admin/cpsizeme -S
Cause

Check Point Performance Sizing Utility adds these messages on purpose:

  1. into the /etc/motd file; if this is not possible, then
  2. into the ~/.bashrc file and into the ~/.cshrc file

Solution

Follow these steps:

  1. Connect to command line on the involved machine.

  2. Log in to Expert mode.

  3. Check if cpsizeme script is still running:

    [Expert@HostName]# ps auxw | grep cpsizeme

  4. If the cpsizeme script is not running anymore (the message during login should have been "Check Point Performance Sizing Utility v<N> is done"), then:

    • Check the /etc/motd file:

      [Expert@HostName]# cat /etc/motd

      If this message comes from this file, then edit the file in Vi editor and remove the line with message about cpsizeme

    • Check the ~/.bashrc file:

      [Expert@HostName]# cat ~/.bashrc

      If this message comes from this file, then edit the file in Vi editor and remove the line with message about cpsizeme

    • Check the ~/.cshrc file:

      [Expert@HostName]# cat ~/.cshrc

      If this message comes from this file, then edit the file in Vi editor and remove the line with message about cpsizeme


  5. Connect to command line on the involved machine in another shell.
