Is there anyway to increase inode value by means of swapping or anything? I've enough disk space but 100% inode value giving me this problem.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • what does df -h / say? if you're sure you have enough free space, take a look at tune2fs : link – schaiba Oct 14 '15 at 7:53

    What is the file system? If it's ext2/3/4 you have to recreate it specifying more inodes. Some other file systems offer dynamic inodes. – Marco Oct 14 '15 at 7:57
  • i've ext3 type partitioned disk. it's provided by vps provider. without recreate how can i increase inode value.? – Ningappa Oct 14 '15 at 8:34
  • As I mentioned above, you cannot. – Marco Oct 14 '15 at 8:35
  • df -h shows 37% of tatal disk being used. Now itself df -i is 100%, then is rest of disk is unusable..? – Ningappa Oct 14 '15 at 15:54
