Drive Critical Help!


I'm receiving this email from my web server:
Quote:
Drive Critical: /dev/mapper/vg_ns1-lv_root (/) is 100% full
Anyone has the idea of what steps to do to fix this problem? Thanks.

If you have space left, increase the size of vg_ns1-lv_root (LVM Resizing Guide).

Also have a look to see if you can remove some (old) logs etc.

Hope this helps.

0) check if you can access and log in if the machine is not local (else notify the hosting party),
1) assess what caused the partition to be filled and ensure it does not happen again (or else you'll have to deal with it RSN),
2) determine if data needs to be saved elsewhere (local copy and delete, scp, FTP) or can be safely deleted.

So weird cause when I check the system health in whm just now. the Disk Usage / Graphs who a good statistics to me. I just don't know why the server sent me that email.

Do you have any idea of the possible cause of this email?

No I don't, because I don't know your file system layout, what automated maintenance the machine performs, what services the machine runs and who is allowed to do what on the machine.
