where's my harddrive space going?
hi all. i'm confused. when i reboot linux i start with about 60% of my partition free, but over the course of a couple days my partition gets more full (right now it's 15% free). "du -sh" on my root directory reports 873mb are being used, but "df -h" reports 1.4gb are being used
[root@localhost /]# du -x --max-depth=1 -h
[root@localhost /]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdb5 1.7G 1.4G 254M 85% /
11:34pm up 8 days, 5:13, 3 users, load average: 2.21, 2.02, 1.70
I don't get where my partition is getting filled.
my system has been up 8 days, and i've lost about 600mb into thin air, as far as I can tell. If I were to reboot now, the partition would be back at "expected" size.
any clues? Current Mood: confused
