/usr file system geting full

Hello Team Good morning to all of you,

We are running SAP at the front end.The /usr size is 6 gig.

Now the problem is that i am facing the issue of /usr f/s geting full almost 95 to 100%.

we donst have online jfs here. In the SAP application the tracing & looging is enable thats why the application writes the 

log in the OS it self ,now the problem is that what files need to be moved or delet .

 

Please suggest the solution

Re: /usr file system geting full

cd into the /usr directory and then do a 'du -ks * | sort -n' to look for the largest directory in /usr.  Once you find it cd into that directory and do the du command again until you find something that can be cleaned up.  It could be a large file in a directory or a bunch of smaller files that add up to a large amount.

Re: /usr file system geting full

Hi,

Welcome to the HP Community forums.

From your Facebook post in HP-UX, we see that /usr is 50% filled with the SAP installation.

Do you know if SAP is creating logs in /usr/SAP?

If true, what is the path to these logs?

 

Can you post the output from: vgdisplay vg00?

 

This will show if there is any unused space that you add to /usr.

Re: /usr file system geting full

Sir ,i am getting confuse about the /usr & the /usr/sap/trans/log ,/usr/sap/RPS ...cause i deleted the unwanted files like old logs & some old application binaries ...which were of the size 20 to 25 gigs from both the location i.e /usr/sap/trans/log & /usr/sap/RPS still the /usr is showing 98% ..please advice ....

If you deleted logs that were still open (modified recently), these files won't be freed until the program is finished.

You can use lsof to find files with "zero" links.
