File System Problem

Postby smunir362 » Thu Mar 17, 2011 7:22 pm

My Linux Box was running well. But next day I have come to know that its root partition is 100% Full.
How to investigate and overcome this issue.

Watch out for the !
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Hi,

When you login goto to / then run "du -sh * | grep G" this will show you size of all, next look for very odd sized folder, normally this is VAR bcz of logs (as per my past experience), then goto the odd sized folder using cd, then again perform the same task "du -sh *" by doing this you will to know the exact point bcz of which filesystem got 100%.

Or you can always use find command to find files larger then particular size.
use "man find"
Kind Regards
