    Hey!

    I got a little problem, my box has more than 80% of inodes used, however, only 4% of the disk space is used...

    #df
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    vzfs 114207091 4065676 103065988 4% /
    vzfs 114207091 4065676 103065988 4% /var/named/run-root/var/run/dbus

    #df -i
    Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
    vzfs 200000 162842 37158 82% /
    vzfs 200000 162842 37158 82% /var/named/run-root/var/run/dbus


    What should I do? Can I change this?


    Thanks

    Can you find any directories with large amounts of small files? Usually this is the cause of running out of inodes. Once I purged thousands of small logfiles from a directory and I had to delete the directory and recreate it to clear the inodes, else it still looked huge with ls -li.

    I don't know where to look for small files... Also, isn't it possible to increase the number of inodes (without re-formating the all thing)?

    Thanks

    Not with ext3, if you're using xfs you can do it with mkfs.xfs. Your problem might also be with your virtual server provider, they can set a quota on the number of inodes you will have access to. I'd start with them.
