Re: root partition issue

hi,

the question is how did you made the server filesystem layout, is there only a single root / partition or a separated partions for /usr /var /tmp ....., second question is what for application is on the server running...

if you have a single partition for all data,

use find command to identify what is the reason for filling up the root filesystem.

ok and what they are doing the 700 lines in the crontab ???

ok if you have a file system monitoring, that check the fs usage you will be able identify the time when the root filesystem will grow, and them check the entries in crontab.

Hi Michal

Just move data from one folder to another folder, cp data folder to folder, copy file to file using CAT command. All folder path is not root partition.
