we are getting alerts from cpanel regarding "DISKWARN: /cpanelbackup on (11.11.11.111): 591.45/687.67 GB - 91%"

Code:
Filesystem:	/dev/sdb1
Mount Point:	/cpanelbackup
Percentage Full:	 91%
Disk Information:	
Used: 591.45GB
Available: 61.29GB
Total: 687.67GB
df -h info

[email protected] [~]# df -h

/usr/tmpDSK           4.0G  178M  3.6G   5% /tmp

but if you calculate cpanelbackup
688 GB - 592GB = 96 GB should be available, whereas it is showing 62 GB, why it is showing wrong info
how do i correct it ?

also "/dev/sda3" is wrong

PHP:
/dev/sda3            1016G   35G  931G   4% /
1016 GB - 35 GB = 981 GB (difference 981-931 GB = 50GB)

No helps from this thread, they are talking about vps, cloud vps and i have dedicated server
I don't think it matters in this case.
Have you rebooted the server?

If I understand you right you are complaining that the "df" command is not working correctly.

The command "df" is not part of cPanel, it's part of the operating system.

I checked in a few servers and it seems that it always shows wrong, i.e. Size - Used > Avail
