    I'm a newbye.

    Yesterday i received this message from the server:

    Drive Warning: /sda3 (/usr) is 88% full

    Today another email notify this:

    Drive Warning: /sda3 (/usr) is 90% full

    Which is the use of the /usr partitions that can justify a loss of 2% in only 1 day??????

    Can you suggest to me the solutions?
    Is it critical?

    Can I change my partition scheme?

    /dev/sda1 981M 389M 542M 42% /
    /dev/sda7 53G 3.2G 47G 7% /home
    none 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda6 981M 19M 913M 2% /tmp
    /dev/sda3 3.9G 3.3G 376M 90% /usr
    /dev/sda2 6.8G 3.4G 3.1G 52% /var


    Please help me... i search for a solution but every post talks about change the warning level and don't solve the problem of going out of space.....


    Sorry for my bad english!

    Go on, have a guess
    If it's urgent and you don't know how to do it, you'll have to hire a server admin to help you.

    First I will start by saing that /usr is a bit small on your servers. Typially we configure it to be about 16G on our servers with 160G drives. Most often /usr fills up on cpanel servers because of apache logs. They can be in one of 2 places:

    main apache logs (access and error_log)
    /usr/local/apache/logs/

    individual apache site logs
    /usr/local/apache/domlogs/

    partitions filling up like that is exactly why we slice ours up
    100m /boot
    1 or 2 gig /tmp
    and the rest goes under /

    then you do not have to worry about a individual partition filling up
    and if you do at a future time wish to add drive/s to mount individual partitions on then its very easy to do
