    Run this command and see what you get:
    Code:
    fsck -f -v /dev/md1

    Running out of inodes, but not out of disk space, usually means that you have a large number of very small files that use up many inodes but not necessarily much disk space. A frequent culprit for this is mail messages. How many messages do you have in the queue? You can find out using this command:

    Code:
    # exim -bpc
    If there are a large number of mail messages in the queue, the Exim Cheatsheet is a useful tool for learning how to manipulate the queue and gain control over what is in it:
