Re: /usr is 100% full in HP-UX server. Which file can be deleted?

Is this a separate filesystem and how large is it?

Did it become full recently?  Did you install software recently?

 

Can you find any large directories?

Run the below command to find the 10 largest files under /usr

 

# find /usr -type f -xdev -print | xargs -e ll | sort -rn -k5 | head -n 10

 

If you have free PV's available in vg00, then you can extend the /usr lvol to get space.

You can speed up that find by using -exec ... +:

# find /usr -type f -xdev -exec ll -d {} + | sort -rn -k5 | head -n 10

In case it's a bunch of small files in a directory:

 

$ nice find /usr -type d -exec du -sk {} \; | sort -nr | more

 

and see if anything odd stands out.

cd to /var

run: du -skx * | sort -n

 

this should give you an idea of whats taking up the most space
