Re: / is full

Is it growing? I have a system with / at 87%. It's been 87% for a long time, so it doesn't bother me.

If it is growing you probably have a process that's writing to / but would be better writing to a different lvol.

The usual suspect in a case like this is a mistyped tape device name creating a large file in /dev, but your output doesn't show /dev, so I don't think that's likely in your case.

Re: / is full

Hi

What is in the /etc/vx directory as that is taking up nearly half of the total space. I don't have a directory called that so I'm guessing it's not part of the standard O/S install and is an additional product. If it is required and likely to grow, you may need to look at creating a link so the information is in a serarate file system.

Re: / is full

Hi again,

first /etc/vx is ok - i've it too, and it's static (not growing).
Then - your
/dev/vg00/lvol3 204800 184091 19440 90% /
is very small, so not thought for additional software, so as said before you should move /oracle, then you should be ok.

Re: / is full

fyi - vx seems to be Veritas File System (Online JFS)
