have you ever got warning message from unix admin that file system running out of space or not enou..

Answer / amitshiknis

A user can see such message or warning when user cross the
limit of data size. You will need to clean up the disk to
make free disk space.

Answer / sushil

On critical systems, make some space by moving some large
not in use, non-critical files to another file system which
is having some enough free space. Once u get some space run
the logrotate manually, u will gain some free space if u
have enabled the compression in log-rotate . After this u
can archive the old logs to tape or some location on
different file system.
Aaaand then start investigation to check what is causing FS
to become ful.

Answer / bc

If you want to delete large files that resides on your home
directory you can sort out things using find command.

find . -size +10M ---> lists files having size greater than
10MB.

find . -size -10M --> lists files having size less than 10MB.

Similarly you can use "k" instead of "M" for kb's.
