Disk space monitoring through webmin
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 22, 2012
Hi guys. I just recently discovered webmin, which is very nice. I was wondering if anyone knows if (or how to do it) webmin can send out disk space info on a regular schedule, and also alert if it's below a certain threshold of free space.
What I'm thinking would be cool is if
1)I could get an email every morning basically showing me a "df -h", then
2) have it check on a regular basis (like every 15 minutes or something) throughout the day for if each file system gets past a certain % used, then it would email me letting me know, so I could avoid a file system filling up, which happens quite often on my old servers i cant replace yet

Clean disk space in Ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 9, 2013
since last week I receive automatical warnings, that I have only 350-400 MB free on my file system (/root is 8 GB large). How can I clean some space? To be honest, I didn't expect that - more or less - standard installation of Ubuntu will consume all 8 GB of the space. I have nothing special installed...
Thanks in advance,
[SOLVED] Ubuntu 11.10 keeps warning about low disk space please help, it drives me mad
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 23, 2012
I've came across strange bug, and it's related to baobab or something deeper. Ubuntu still keeps warning about low disk space and i can't switch off it.
I tried using baobab (disk analyzer) and i unchecked all of disk, media, even / but it still keeps me warning.
I found on www that we can do it from configurator-editor in
Deleted log files taking up huge disk space
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 7, 2010
My /var/ partition continues to fill up on all my servers, and it is because the logs in /var/log/apache2 or /var/log/mysql are being deleted during log rotate, but their file handles are being held open. Thus, a "du -sh /var/log" shows the correct values, but "df | grep /var" shows something much different.
It seems that the log files rotate, however if I run "lsof | grep deleted" it returns lots of files that are no longer visible in the directory, however refuse to clear themselves off the disk.
The only way I have found to make these log files go away (and thus clear up the disk space on the partition I should have) is to restart either apache or mysql, depending on which process has huge sized log files being held open.
Is it just me, or is this a big flaw in the way linux works, that it can't figure out how to release file handle for a log so the disk space can be reclaimed? Am I doing something terribly wrong here? This is happening to me
[SOLVED] Ubuntu LTS server 10.04.03 is filling disk space
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2012
My boot disk with 140Gb disk space is filling all it's disk space since last week.
I do not know what is happening but I noticed this because mysql server didn't start up so I could not read my mails.
Than after searching the internet I found an issue where diskspace is the problem and indeed here too.
Yesterday I have removed a lot of space which was possible and I also removed old GTUB's and I had 40Gb free space.
But now this morning again when I did the command df it showed me 100% use so nothing available.
Even after a reboot it still stays on 100% USE so somehow some files have been created?
How can I find the files or directory which is causing this?
Ubuntu has no disk space left?
- date: September 3, 2011
I just installed Ubuntu today, before that my primary operating system was XP, which is still on this computer. After quite a few checks, my computer has about a 230GB hard drive, which about 25GBs are used up on. So i have a lot of room left. But Ubuntu (10.04) tells me that I only have 38 MB left on the whole comp in an error message and it will not download anything. But when checking my disk space with the Disk Usage Analyzer program, it shows the correct amount (~200GB left).
here is a screenshot of the error message: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]
I posted this question on Yahoo answers, (got no responses) but since then I tried to repair some game or piece of software I was downloading from their Software Center, which probably filled up the rest of the space (It didn't even end up repairing it). So now it says I have zero bytes left. Also it may help that when I installed Ubuntu (got 10.04 from their website) I selected 3GB download as opposed to w

Redhat 9 disk space full when not supose to be?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 24, 2004
First off I've been teaching myself linux for a year now.. So I don't know to much.
I have installed Red-Hat 9 on a 100GB hard-drive and have frequently ran up2date.
I also have put on samba so I can copy my files to a "Storage" place on my linux hdd.
Now I can't copy any more files because it says that my disk is filled up.. In fact it won't even start the GUI X Server because it is full. This can't be true because last time I checked I had 65% free space on the hdd, and that was yesterday..
Does anyone know any programs I can use to correct this? Or what is constantly making it say that it's full
when I do "df -h" it looks like this:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 91G 87G 0 100% /
/dev/hda1 101M 14M 82M 15% /boot
none 236M 236M 236M 0% /dev/shm
FYI: I only have 1 hard
Ubuntu 7.10.....Not enouph Disk space...I have a 60 gig drive??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2009
Good afternoon all...I have a Hp Business Style Notebook compaq nx7400 running Ubuntu 7.10. Over all everything worked out of the box...
I have a 60 gig harddrive, thinking that i have enough space to put all my music on the drive I'd used the ogg multimedia format.... So far I have 895 songs totaling 3.2MB. Using disk usage analyzer it shows that.:
Total filesystem capacity 52.7gb (8.0GB used 47.7GB Available)
/gordon 100% usage 4.3gig size 60 items,
/music 73.4 usage 3.2gig size 5 Items,
I have an external harddrive that I'd tryed coping approx 900 more songs to the 60gig internal drive and the error message came up as not enouph disk space.....I read that i should not leave my system in singal user mode.
/dev/sda1 ext3 /
Can some one please point me to a the howto files / man files or the webpages that I need to read and what I may be so blindly missing....
I really do not what I need to look at....
