Every time, I run LAMMPS for 4-5 days, the disk space (3TB) would be used up. I tried to find possible temporary files using commands like:
du -d 5
du -h --max-depth=1
du . | sort -nr | head -n50
However, I cannot find these files.
du command shows that the diskspace is used by some files in my working directory. There don't seem to be any files that are over large. If I reboot the server, the space is released. How can I find these temporary files and delete them safely? Or any other solution will be highly appreciated.
df -h after running LAMMPS around 24 hours:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on rootfs 3.5T 1.2T 2.2T 35% / udev 10M 0 10M 0% /dev tmpfs 6.4G 2.0M 6.3G 1% /run /dev/mapper/cosmos-root 3.5T 1.2T 2.2T 35% / tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 13G 315M 13G 3% /run/shm /dev/sda2 229M 18M 199M 9% /boot
Please do not arbitrarily mark my question as duplicated one!
