I have a Oracle application server on linux on which I saw today when there was a stress on the application that one of my filesystem where the application resides was filling up. I removed some big installation files but still it was filling up. I issued the command find / -size +103400k | xargs ls -laAh
to see which file is growing and it indicated the big files in the trace directory where the cli_9769.trc kind of trace files resides. But besides these large files where one was being constantly accessed, no other files showed up. The trace file that was constantly being edited (because the timestamp was changing, was not growing further, it is 3.1G big and it stayed that size. But still the filesystem was growing. Can someone tell me how to troubleshoot these kind of issue and has someone experience with OAS that knows that these kind of problems occurs when the system is heavily used? I have to mention that the system was used today for the stress test but the server was did not encounter any problems whit that so I think it does not have anything to do with the stresstest.
