No Space Left On Device

Sometimes, the no space left on device error message is subtle. Instead of meaning the disk is full, it can mean that there are numerically too many files on the filesystem which has exhausted the available inodes.

[root@stella mailman]# df -i /var
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/hda8             130560  130560       0  100% /var

Unfortunately there does not seem to be an easy way to get df to list both -i and -k options at the same time.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
