Description Karen Bruner 2005-03-01 20:41:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: We have a network filesystem ~45Tb in size, mounted as an smbfs share. df or any compiled program using the statvfs call reports the size as 17Tb on one machine we have that was installed as RH EL 3 ES, update 3, but is running the 2.4.21-27.0.2.EL kernel. On another machine running the same kernel but installed from the update 4 ISOs, a C program using statvfs reports the same size, but df reports the filesystem size as 73786976294837944320Kb. The filesystem is accessible. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-smp-2.4.21-27.0.2.EL How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Mount a network filesystem >17Tb in size 2. Run df 3. Actual Results: On one machine: Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on //server/fs 17179607040 10539761664 6639845376 62% /mountpoint On the other: Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on //server/fs 73786976294837944320 73786976288198098944 6639845376 100% /mountpoint Expected Results: df should have accurately reported the size as 45Tb. Additional info: Filesystem size is 45Tb, usage at this time is 39Tb. Both machines have the same version of df (coreutils-4.5.3-26). They are different hardware, and machines of the same hardware with the same configuration display the same flavor of incorrect information.
