Urgent Help Please. /tmp 100% full

 

Hello Experts,

 

Need urgent help please.

 

Server Details:HP-UX rx3600 B.11.31 U ia64

 

 

I got below message on the sql prompt as well as on user prompt.

 

vxfs: msgcnt 27130 mesg 001: V-2-1: vx_nospace - /dev/vg00/lvol4 file system full (2 block extent)

 

when i look for dbf it shows that /tmp directory gets 100% full, tried to free some space but still it is 99 to 100% usage.

 

HP_perf_vmstat is getting updated frequently, can we create a new file with the same name and drop the existing one by taking the backup of it.

 

-rw-r--r--   1 oracle     oinstall   429617270 Aug  1 12:51 HP_perf_vmstat

 

I will be really thankful if you could provide the solution/workaround to fix it as it is production database server.

 

Thanks & Best Regards,
Syed

I erased all unnecessary files. In spite of that the /tmp dir is still showing %100 full. What could be a problem?

 

Please advise.

If the files that you removed happen to be in use, then the space will not be reclaimed until the process(es) using those files stop.

Thanks for the reply.

 

Please help me out to check for those process and kill it to release the space at earliest.

You deleted an open file, better keep it and delete the contents only.

Hope this helps!

As Patrick said, you need to stop the process that writes to the (deleted) file.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
