In Home »Server Status »Service Status it shows /tmp as using 2.86 of the 3.00 GB.

With SSH using the command

Running tmpwatch only removed 1M of data
/usr/sbin/tmpwatch --mtime --all 24 /tmp

du -sh /tmp only shows 12M

Looking at the files in /tmp then there are no large files or folders.
But on Server Status it is still 1.86GB full.

Why is Server Status showing /tmp as full?

For anyone with the same problem:

Run lsof /tmp

Kill the process that has been deleted but is still locked and using lots of space.
