machine out of disk space
So as of this morning, my desktop server told me it's out of disk space.
Now, it's not impossible. I have a lot of desktop users (around 50) using a machine with about 70 GB of hard drive, but even so, most are saving nothing and only doing internet viewing (on restricted sites) and using a terminal window. This is not a memory intensive system.
I cleared out some dead users and ran "sudo find . -size +7500 -print" to get a list of big files, but it's not pulling up anything that looks susicious (mostly firefox caches).
a) any thoughts on finding the memory sink if there is one?
b) how can I remove the internet caches for all users? ubuntu's forums say to do this:
sudo rm -rf /home/UserName/.mozilla/firefox/*/Cache
boy does that not work. Not even a little.
EDIT: Patched. Many thanks, people. I'd have been on that all day pulling my hair out. tracker was getting uppity. No idea why, but I'm guessing the indexing went nuts and looped itself. I'll keep an eye on it.
