" / is getting very close to full "

My Raq4 is telling me:
" / is getting very close to full. This is very dangerous for the server
and can cause unexpected errors to occur. You either need to move some files to another storage device and delete them from the Sun Cobalt server or delete them altogether. Consult the documentation for help adding storage to your Sun Cobalt server.

Total disk space: 920.0MB
Free disk space: 202.0MB
Percent Used: 78 %"

Active Montire is showing Red light for disk space.

What do I have to do?

Thanx

You should do some house cleaning.  Back up any files that you want to keep.  Once you have backed them up, delete them off of the server.

You could also archive stuff that you are not using.  This would compress them so that they are smaller.  Then delete original files (not the archive from the server.)

tar cvjf archivename.tar.bz2 file1 file2 file3 ...
            ^archive name           ^files to archive

to unpack the archive:

tar xvjf archivename.tar.bz2

Unless your system has a seperate /var partition, thats where I would go first to see what stuff you can get rid of.

Look for the files that are not needed or old neough to be archieved. Especially archieve your log files, probably at /var/log directory.But your system doesnt seem to have storage problem in my opinion, but depends on what yoru are doing with this machine. Don't care about the warning until it says %95 usage of disk, unless you are making too much data transfer load on this partition.

Hi!
Being a Sun cobalt I think it has a 'respectable' partition table, but as owen said, you'd better check out.
Which OS do you use? Please send here your
/etc/fstab
or
/etc/vfstab

and the output of
#df -k
which tells the free space on each slice of HD

Peace, R.

Hi All,

Thanks for your responses. The problem was in the / partition where my spam software was generating all its logs. I had to redirect it to the /var partition were most of the space is available.
