    df reports /var is 100% when it does have room free.


    Hi,

    I'm running RH7.2 with ext3 filesystem and when i run df, it reports that my whole /var is 100% when in fact there is room left.


    root@bigmac [~]# df -k
    Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda3 1510060 1205192 228160 85% /
    /dev/hda1 46636 5958 38270 14% /boot
    /dev/hda2 3020172 581352 2285400 21% /home
    none 123736 0 123736 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/hda7 14650180 14639032 0 100% /var




    What is taking up the space? i've also run df -i to see if the inode table full but it is not.

    Thanks,
    edwin

    14650180 divided by 14639032 is mathematically correctly rounded 1.00 = 100%. more exact: 0.99924

    so it is nearly full.

    solved.


    there was a log file that filled up the partition and i suspect that i couldn't find it was because a program was still accessing it so it never came up in any of the 'du' or anything....
