Sorry if the answer is obvious, but I didn't find any clear answer after
I have a XFS system of 18T over LVM. Recently, I could not create new
files or directories.
# mkdir tempo
mkdir: cannot create directory `tempo': No space left on device
After deleting a few files, this command runs successfully.
So I think that the system runs out of something, inodes I guess.
But the df diagnosis does not enlight it: only 1% used.
# df -ht xfs
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
18T 12T 6.6T 63% /mnt/vg1_backup/backup
# df -it xfs
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
18874040320 530042 18873510278 1%
So what is wrong? How should I solve the problem?
I read about xfs_grow -m, but I am not sure if it could help.
Of course, I rebooted the system before my trials.
