I have installed ubuntu server 16.04 as a webserver at work. I had initially allocated 100GB to it. For some reason, some of the space has been eaten up by tmpfs and I am not able to claim it back.
Here is what i get when I run
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 31G 0 31G 0% /dev tmpfs 6.2G 8.9M 6.2G 1% /run /dev/mapper/filesystem--vg-root 36G 34G 238M 100% / tmpfs 31G 0 31G 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 31G 0 31G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sda1 472M 57M 391M 13% /boot tmpfs 6.2G 0 6.2G 0% /run/user/1000
It appears that my
/ folder is full. Which is not supposed to be the case. The server has already used up the 36GB only. Please help someone.
