    / proc dir and why is mine full ?


    What is the /proc directory on a server? When I do the df command it says mine is at 100%.

    /proc is not a normal directory. It is a realtime list of information about processes running on your system. It is always "full".

    See http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2000...SD_Basics.html
    The real n-tier system:

    FreeBSD -> PostgreSQL -> [any_language] -> Apache -> Mozilla/XUL
