we have an oracle update process that creates arc files in directory thats 8gb. The directory get full before the process completes so we move the arc files to an nfs mount point to create space; however, some not all of the arc files that we move show up as open files. This makes directory appear to be full even though we have moved the arc file and we are not able to continue the oracle update process until there is space available. whats weird is if we do df -h is says full if we do du -sh it says we have space. When we kill the process it release the open files and gives the space. Any ideas? Thanks
