I have run into issues in the past with admins using their /home/ folders, which are in the root partitions, for file storage instead of in the /shared/ partition.
I run into the same question: what eats up space on root?
Why there are only 427M total space for / ex works? Actually we have 58M free space, only 14%. Is this critical? What to do? We dont stored any datas on the f5, no tcpdumps, no stuff in home directories and so on.
Is 58M free space enough for the f5 to work in a stable and performant way? Or do we have to adjust the partition structure?
I hope someone can help 🙂
Update: we solved it, it was our fault - we monitor our f5's with ansible and did not set the parameter keep_remote_files=false
It could be related to this issue:
You should be able to safely delete the temporary files as indicated in the article.
When I have faced such issue, I have removed unwanted files with .gz and .tar extensions in /var folder.
Also I have removed all files in /tmp folder.
Usually BIGIP images also occupies more space. It is recommened to remove unwanted bigip image files.
