I'm new to Linux and to this forum too. Now, I need some info.

I have an application which writes some data onto one mount(logs and others).

Now, I want to have some convention or script where if the mount(where the application is writing data) reaches certain amount of memory or if it becomes full, then it should automatically write the data to the other mount in a specific directory.

How can I go about it?

Thanks in advance,

You can write a script that checks with "df" how much space is left and cut out the percentage with awk for example and write it into a variable, which is tested with "test" and/or "if". Only problem will be to tell your application to write into the other directory. Not sure how much of an option you have to configure it's output directory and if it must be restarted or if something like a "kill -1" can make it recognize the changed configuration.
The script itself is easy and a good excercise when being new to Linux/Unix
