Saturday I have to repartition my HDD. On my server I have 72GB HDD space which is not very much.
Currently my system is partitioned as follows:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/vg_web-lv_root 50G 5.8G 41G 13% / tmpfs 1.9G 16K 1.9G 1% /dev/shm /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 485M 93M 367M 21% /boot /dev/mapper/vg_web-lv_home 14G 8.7G 4.1G 68% /home
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on /dev/mapper/vg_web-lv_root 3.2M 125K 3.1M 4% / tmpfs 179K 5 179K 1% /dev/shm /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 126K 50 125K 1% /boot /dev/mapper/vg_web-lv_home 869K 559K 311K 65% /home
I want to increase the /home directory with ± 20 - 30 GB and I want to decrease the root directory (/).
My server did already ran out of Inodes before I wiped a directory with 340.000 files. I get ± 15.000 small 1kb files a day.
Now I want to be sure that I don't get any issues saturday. Should I reinstall/format my harddisc and reinstall the system? Or should I repartition the harddisc and or how to do this?
