Hi all,

So i started getting the below email a few days ago, once a day. I have looked at all my accounts and none of them are particular big. What could be using all the space, and what is this space the email refers to even used for?

The file system /dev/mapper/vg_h3722021106-lv_root, which is mounted at /, has reached warn status because it is 85% full.

Server: xxx
Primary IP: xxx
Notification Type: diskwarn
Filesystem: /dev/mapper/vg_h3722021106-lv_root
Mount Point: /
Percentage Full: 85%
Disk Information:

Available: 7.20GB
Total: 49.22GB
ChkServd Version: 15.2


Thank you

Hello :)

It's referring to the "/" partition on your system. You can review the disk space output with a command such as:

Code:
df -h
The following document provides information on how to find out where your space usage is coming from:

cPanel - Manage HD Space

Thank you.
