What to Do If a File System Fills Up
When the root (/) file system or any other file system fills up,
you will see the following message in the console window:
.... file system full
There are several reasons why a file system fills up. The following sections
describe several scenarios for recovering from a full file system. For information about
how to routinely clean out old and unused files to prevent file systems from
becoming too full, see Chapter 16, Managing Disk Use (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Devices and File Systems.
File System Fills Up Because a Large File or Directory Was Created
A TMPFS File System Is Full Because the System Ran Out of Memory
This can occur
if TMPFS is trying to write more than it is allowed or some
current processes are using a lot of memory.
For information about recovering from tmpfs
error messages, see the tmpfs(7FS)
