Insufficient Space for Yum Installs? I'm confused


Hey guys,

Can someone enlighten me on this:

df -h

Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs             26G  751M     0 100% /
none                  1.0G  4.0K  1.0G   1% /dev
Firstly, why is only 26G of my 60 gig hard drive available? Secondly, why do I have 0 bytes available, when I'm only using 751M on a 26G?

Either way, I keep getting this error everytime I try to install something from yum:

Code:
 Insufficient space in download directory /var/cache/yum/base/packages

    * free   0
    * needed 19 k

I'm getting cranky looking at this, and not being able to figure out what is wrong.

Looks like node is running out of space. Try contacting the host.

Try looking at

df -i

That will look at the inodes to make sure they have not run out.

The other thing is your host may physically have run out of space on the server, even though your individual VPS is supposed to have more quota.

The other option is that the quotas are simply wrong on your usage.

Check what is consuming all disk space

Overselling = Great!
Gross Overselling = Not so great!



That would be the likely candidate, mismanagement of the node by the provider.

INterestingly enough, notice how my /dev/ partition changed size.

Your / changed down to 2.3Gb from 26Gb, which are you supposed to have? Sounds like your provider just changed your quota.

You need to contact your host, they probably ran out of space on the server. Nothing anybody here can do for you. Once you do get it back online you will also want to scan your MySQL as that may also be corrupt from running out of space.

Yeah, all my mySQL databases are currently corrupt.

I contacted the host... My space has been fluctuating all day come to think of it.

Except, I'm kind of curious as to why my RAM usage would jump 450 mb's from a corruption... seems kind of steep in that regard too.

My VPS package is supposed to have 60 gigs So neither.

Sounds like overall something funky is going on with their box. Probably just disk space, hopefully they have another server they can use to free up some space soon. I would be curious to see what the host says as to what happened, sounds like some overselling as others have mentioned.

I'm interested to see what my provider is doing. It's a respected WHT seller, so its odd to be experiencing this (maybe its a new hardware problem)

But, I am now unable to connect to my IP address through a browser, but I can still SSH connect and ping the server

This was around 2 PM -8 GMT time
Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs             10G  2.0G     0 100% /
none                  1.0G  4.0K  1.0G   1% /dev
This is what it now reads.
Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs             22G  2.0G     0 100% /
none                  1.0G  4.0K  1.0G   1% /dev
I'm assuming they're trying to fix something? I sent them a ticket at like 7AM, and I still have not got a response (sad face... But the lack of IP access hopefully means they're looking into it)

Now, I'm stuck at the point where I can ping my IP, but I can't connect to it. I assume that means they're trying to see what is wrong with it -- but they could have at least responded, so I know they're looking at it. My server has been down the entire day

I guess the final nail in the coffin is that it takes me nearly 5 minutes to login to my VPS' control panel now.

Interestingly, I rebooted the entire system... and after it breaking all my auto-start up commands... I got everything back to a working condition. However, Im worried it will break again do to the fluctuating quota.

Apparently, the host was having trouble with the new kernal's on their nodes... So, they dumped everything onto node5 as a backup which quickly ate up all the space.

Unfortunately, they didn't take into consideration this would break my entire server Now, my squirrelmail and DNS won't work... I've fixed everything else, but I can not figure out how to get these working again for the life of me...
