    Hello,

    Now i am facing one weired issue.
    When i run df -h i got /tmp is 100% full -
    --------------------
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 9.7G 3.0G 6.2G 33% /
    /dev/sda1 99M 14M 80M 15% /boot
    none 502M 0 502M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda8 188G 8.7G 170G 5% /home
    /dev/sda7 1012M 960M 608K 100% /tmp
    /dev/sda3 9.7G 3.0G 6.2G 33% /usr
    /dev/sda2 20G 3.3G 16G 18% /var
    /tmp 1012M 960M 608K 100% /var/tmp
    -----------------------------

    But there is no files in /tmp folder.I have clear /tmp but still it is showing /tmp is 100% full.

    What could be reason? and what is solution for this?

    Please update me.

    Thank you.

    Delete the contents from /var/tmp and you should be good to go.

    If you are sure no files are in there, you may need to restart the box or recreate your /tmp if a restart doesn't work. Let us know.

    Go on, have a guess
    Also, make sure that there aren't any hidden directories, e.g. ... is a typical hackers directory and can be easily missed. I'd expect the problem is a corrupt partition file and you need to recreate it.
