Re: Root file system full

Typically, you should be able to tell if a filesystem is full by using the 'bdf' command.

If your root filesystem is full, you will also probably notice messages in /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log as well.

Re: Root file system full

Hi Paper,

Run the
#bdf
command & check for the filesystem that is named just "/"
If you're close to full then run
#cd /
#du -akx | sort -nr | more
This will sort the files, largest first, in that FS & restrict the output to ONLY the / FS & files/dirs that actually reside in /.

HTH,
Jeff

Re: Root file system full

Hi,

bdf /

You can use du -x / |sort -n to find out the files|directories only in root file system and their corresponding sizes.

Re: Root file system full

Hi,

use bdf / or df -k /
to find out whether your root filesystem is full or not.

# bdf | grep /

Re: Root file system full

You can do:

du -kx / | sort -rn | more

to determine which directories are using the most space.

Try this Command:
du -sk * |sort -k1,1n
it will also sort it with the culprit at last.

Thanks
