Determining latest file change on Linux

Hi all,

We run several RedHat 7.3 servers.

From time to time I see very high disk usage.

Sometimes this is a core dump or I find a dead.letter, but often it's an arbitrary file that has increased in size.

I use: find / -type f -size +100000000 to check for large files, but this doesn't always help.

Is there a command / script that lists which files has increased in size (I.E. changed) in the past hour, or so?

Thank you.

Jo.

find / -type f -atime 1
