Inode issue


I've got a server that has run out of inodes (per df -i), although it has storage space left on the partition.

What are my options at this point?

You're going to have to delete some files or move them to a different partition. Inodes store meta-data about files as well as the physical location of the file on the disk. Therefore, if a filesystem is out of inodes it cannot create new files. As I said, you'll need to free some up by moving files to a different partition.
