I am new to AIX administration and I am needing some assistance -  when doing a df I get to following:

Filesystem        512-blocks   Free    %Used    Iused     %Iused     Mounted on
/dev/lvssac433      81920     34368   59%        10240   100%          /DEVELOP/RXJDEV

what I am looking for is an answer about the %Iused.......    What is it and is this a factor on this filesystem.
I think that it is, is that their are no more inodes left in this directory -- if that is the case how do I clear it down.

Those options show me the same output from the regular df, just without all the other data.  My question is if this is the inodes of this filesystem, what factor does this have on the volume group as far as writing stuff to the hard drive and if it is a factor what do I have to do to clean this up.

Try this:
1) df -ki   * Check the free inode
2) backup the old file system
3) make a new file system and use "mkfs -i 2048" to set Inode size
4) restore data to the new file system

Or

Increase the size of the file system.
chfs -a size=+ amount of 512k blocks /filesystem name

Does the Inode size have anything to do with placing anything in this directory.  If the Inode size is 100% and the Used size is 50% can you not place any files in this directory.

The inodes are used to map the data in the filesystem.  If there aren't any left then you can put anything else in that filesystem.
