poblem in inode space.

Hi Experts,

I have poblem in inode space.
I want to reduce the inode space for paticular Mount point.

The normal mount Point space is only 55% but the inode space is 71%

Please guid me how to reduce the inode space form 71 to 65


The output is look like
Report on space:
================

df -k

/dev/dsk/net 6144000 3053541 2476475 55% /net

Report on inode:
===============
df -i

/dev/dsk/net 14534 5946 71% /net

Re: poblem in inode space.

What type of filesystem is it? hfs or vxfs?
If the latter, vxfs will make more as needed.

Why do you care? You reduce the space by removing lots of small files. I.e. tar them up.

Both what? There can only be one /net on a system at a time.

You will be in the /net directory. To determine where /net is, use this command:

bdf .

(don't forget the . character). /net may actually be a network filesystem in which case there is nothing you can do on this system. And as mentioned before, a VxFS filesystem does not have any limits for inodes except disk space. The inode percentage you see in bdf is meaningless ofr VxFS. There is only one filesystem where the inode count is limited: /stand which is an HFS filesystem. It should require inode maintenance.
