disk capacity shown as 101% full when disk space still available.

Hi,

I'm running 4.0F and whenever I do "df -k" on my disk (/usr) the capacity shown is 101%.

However if I do a "showfdmn" on my usr_domain it only indicates 39% usage. Note my filesystem usr_domain#usr is mounted on /usr.

No matter how many files I remove from /usr the capacity shown does not change. It always indicates 0 disk available but I have no problems putting more files on /usr.

Can anyone please help?

Many Thanks,
Mark

Re: disk capacity shown as 101% full when disk space still available.

df uses the quota information, showfdmn uses the metadata info.
use quotacheck to correct the quota information.

hth,

Hi Hein,

Thanks for the info. I ran quotacheck on my filesystem and everything is in order now.

Re: disk capacity shown as 101% full when disk space still available.

this problem was diskussed here in the forum several time.

df uses the quota files, du calculates the size depending on the filesizes.

the correct value is given by showfdmn.

In case df shows wrong values, use quotacheck to correct the values.
