Would appreciate any thoughts. Have been trawling posts for 2 days and not having any significant luck. Only started getting partition full erors approx 12 hours after a reboot, has been fine for months prior to that. Code: root@tank [/]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 9.7G 9.5G 34M 100% / tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm /dev/sda1 291M 138M 138M 51% /boot /dev/sda8 258G 13G 233G 6% /home /dev/sda7 3.9G 73M 3.6G 2% /tmp /dev/sda2 9.9G 6.8G 2.6G 73% /usr /dev/sda3 9.9G 1.3G 8.2G 14% /var xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/mnt/tank/skunkworks/tank.xxx.com 200G 23G 178G 12% /mnt/backups backup is on / but it's linked to /home/backup but it's empty/not in use I also have remote /mnt/backup and this is where backups are directed nothing at all dramatic when doing a ls in /root fstab looks like this Code: root@tank [~]# cat /etc/fstab # # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Sun May 27 06:06:40 2012 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk' # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info # UUID=a9374b4d-dbea-464d-9203-3cd6af039c46 / ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 1 UUID=dbbe179b-e6b9-460c-921d-a329f2c7ad5e /boot ext4 defaults 1 2 UUID=aec5f695-3cd8-4d55-bfa3-faae514e307d /home ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 2 UUID=5b760c4f-2f4b-4f1b-8db0-57fa099dfdbb /tmp ext4 loop,noexec,nosuid,rw 1 2 UUID=44a50a4e-bf87-4461-9dd6-5e715cb2a199 /usr ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 2 UUID=c54bfa24-1af4-42b3-9b10-c613df8134c5 /var ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 2 UUID=40485749-084c-4d93-9afe-909b302e2944 swap swap defaults 0 0 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs noexec,nosuid 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults,noexec,nosuid 0 0 also if I'm in / and do a Code: ls -lR | less and then scroll through everything, nothing at all jumps out at me as an especially big file. have done a Code: yum clean all no mention of disk errors in /var/log/messages at all lost+found is empty I've been through pretty much everything and removed what I could. I'm think I'm now getting snow blind hoping someone here can make further suggestions? I haven't tried a reboot yet, thinking that's next.
