Ultrix df doesn't report the correct filesystem space

Ultrix df doesn't report the correct filesystem space

Post by Bin Zh » Wed, 22 Jul 1992 05:05:25

        The df in my ULTRIX 4.2A is not reporting the correct file
system space. I use the du to check it. I had a big /var/adm/acct
file and after I did a sa I removed the big acct file and restarted
the accton.  But the df doesn't report this correctly. Any help will
be appreciated. Thanks.

1. 'df' continues to report filesystem full after files deleted

Discovered wierd problem on Solaris 2.3.

We have some tmp files that tend to grow quickly and that results in a
file full condition in the root file system.  I can delete the problem
file and reduce the root system by 3MB (a significant percentage in a
15MB root), but 'df' still shows filesystem, and applications trying
to write to /tmp still fail because file system full.  A 'du -dks'
shows that the space has been cleared up even though 'df -k' does not
recognize it.

The failure of 'df -k' to show the released space only occurs if the
filesystem has become full.  Otherwise, 'df -k' reports correctly, and
everything works fine.

Any ideas what's going on?  I've tried the FAQ, Sun's web server, and
SunSolve.  I haven't a clue.
