Hello. I have a SLES 11 SP1 server running GroupWise, and the root
partition filled up. I've freed up some space but I'm having a hard time
accounting for all the space that df tells me is used. du tells me that
there's about 1.8 GB of space used on root; df tells me there's 3.3 GB
used. Here are my partitions:


mail:~ # cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=boot /boot ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-3600508e00000000075cb2e1d614cf10d-part5 swap
swap acl,user_xattr 0 0
/dev/system/root_lv / ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 1
/dev/system/opt_lv /opt ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2
/dev/system/srv_lv /srv ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2
/dev/system/tmp_lv /tmp ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2
/dev/system/usr_lv /usr ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2
/dev/system/var_lv /var ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2
/dev/system/home_lv /home reiserfs acl,user_xattr
1 2
proc /proc proc defaults
0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto
0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto
0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto
0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5
0 0
/dev/system/gwsystem /gwsystem ext3 acl,user_xattr
1 2

And here's the space used on each partition:


mail:~ # df -H

/dev/mapper/system-root_lv

/dev/mapper/system-gwsystem

df: `/media/disk-1': No such file or directory

Here's the space used by directory:


mail:/ # du -sh *
3.4M backup
8.9M bin
54M boot
160K dev
75M etc
44K gwcache.db

du: cannot access `var/lib/ntp/proc/6605': No such file or directory
4.7G var
mail:/ #

If I eliminate everything from that list that's on a different
partition I'm left with this:


3.4M backup
8.9M bin
54M boot
160K dev
75M etc
44K gwcache.db
97M lib
17M lib64
16K lost+found
1.2G media
8.0K mnt
0 proc
1.5G root
12M sbin
4.0K selinux
0 sys
72K template

'media' is a Dell RD1000 backup cartridge.

What am I missing here?

Thanks.

Keith
