Red face ICINGA inodes overflowed


Hi all ,

I am using ICINGA for some monitoring . its been a week or so i am getting emails about my inodes getting filled up. i have found the directory which is eating up all the inodes by using this
find / -xdev -printf '%h\n' | sort | uniq -c | sort -k 1 -n

it has shown me the directory which has made about 1.7 million files .so i have disk space but no inodes left .is it safe to enough to delete the files inside perfdata?

Only you know that. But deleting a bunch of files will release both inodes and allocated space providing there are no other references to those files.
BTW, you can use --inode with "du" to get the major users of inodes (rather than getting a count like that).

Thanks for your input . yes its better to have a backup but in this case i am more concerned about the ICINGA i mean will it work or not
