df not reporting correct size.
Alright, here is a question of my own.
I'm the NetAdmin for an Engineering firm. We use CUPS for printing, and samba for roaming profile connections.
After a few days, our /var directory becomes bloated. /var has it's own partition, which is just under 1G, but it is sometimes incorrectly reported as only having a few megs left when there is 900M free.
When /var is filled, our printing services die, as there is no temp space left for spooling.
Doing a du -ch recursively on the /var dir correctly reports a usage of ~90M.
I have a feeling that it's a samba issue, that there is some temp file being held open, and not being reported.
A server reboot / Samba shutdown will deflate /var, but this is not a great solution.
Anyone seen this?
