file system full

hello

Even though I am not out of inodes or of space, the /var/adm/messages shows messages:

file system full


I am doing now fcsk -m (400G) and I am still waiting to see the fragmentation results (should I add another option to df to have a faster output?)


Do you have any other hints that might cause this behavior?

I also issue du (disk usage) and the result was conform with the result of df.

thx

fsck -m isn't going to help you.

What is the output from df -k
Also can you print the actual error message you get.

df -k report filesystem disk space usage.better to use du -sh*|sort -nr or du -sk*|sort -nr to know which directory or file is using most of the space

thanks,

df also shows how much disk is free.
If you run du it will take ages to get a result.
Its a filesystem that is full, we are not trying to find which is the biggest directory.

It shows 30 G free

I am not interested in the largest folder.

The file system is not full. It has 30G

My question is: why there is inconsistency between the dmesg output and df -k

I am sure there is more in the message then just "file system full"
Which filesystem are we talking about ?
Is it /tmp , Is it swap space that your running out of ?

The more info you provide the more help you will get.
Vauge info produces vague answers.

This document might be of use to you.
