AIX disk usage problem

ENV: AIX 4.3 / rs6000

while running a program our root (/) directory fills up. I simply can't find where this file is located.

Doing a df . insite the program gives the following output:

during run of program
/dev/hd4 65536 33144 50% 953 6% /
after run of program
/dev/hd4 65536 43800 34% 950 6% /

But when i run a du -ax / to get the disk usage of my root volume
i can't find any differences.

Our these hidden files? I simply can't find the file that is causing
this fill. The production version will kill the root because the processed data is much more ( we have tried it and it did fill to 100 % )

Thanks vor any feedback

-k SIGKILL is sent to each process using the file system.

the syntax in your case will be
