Logical volume size growing
Server Model: HP Proliant DL 380 G4
Operating System: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 6)
We have a server with the above said configurations. It has 2 logical volumes,
/dev/vg01/lvol1 /u01 - Space allocated : 15 G
/dev/vg02/lvol2 /u02 - Space allocated : 29 G
Oracle database (10g) is running in this server. 2 months back we stopped the OPMN running, since causing "http-web-access.log" log file to increase the size, at the same time we are not using any OPMN services. I nullified http-web-access.log file and during that time the size usage of /u01 was 51%.
After some days I found the size of /u01 was increasing slowly and now reached to 94%. I have tried to nullify the log files and deleting the audit (.aud) and trace (.trc) files, I couldnt manage to reduce the size. It is keep increasing. In fact for every few seconds some bytes are increasing. I execute the command "find . -mtime -1 -ls | more" to find the last 1 day modified/created files, nullify the log files, removed the trc and aud files. Still the size is not reducing as a major, it reduced to only a minimum when comparing to the increasing rate. I couldnt figure out the problem. Since it is production, I need to fix the issue before endup in deep trouble. Also I understand that it is not possible to extend the size of /u01 when it is live.
Any help to figure out the issue or reduce the space immediately would be really appreciatable.
Thanks in advance.
