Something is eating disk space
Posted on 2011-03-11
New to Linux. Something is eating disk space at about 0.82 GB an hour. This will continue until disk is at 100%. A reboot frees all of the phantom disk usage and we are back to 18% used.
I check the disk space using WebMin. It is the Disk mounted as
/ (Root filesystem) Linux Native Filesystem (ext3) Partition labelled /1
We are running:
CentOS Linux 5.5
Webmin version 1.510
MySQL version 5.1.52
Apache version 2.2.17
PHP - don't know the version
Zimbra email server
I've tried restarting MySQL, Apache, VNC & Zimbra. No change
Rebooting is the only thing that will help.
I know you cannot diagnose the issue without access to the server, but has anyone run into this issue? Any ideas of where to look?
