Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121381
19 Gbytes free, but diskcheck complains about full disk
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
We have a number of large disks and "diskcheck" keeps complaining
about them, for example:
/dev/md0 (/datay) is 99% full -- 1.4T of 1.4T used, 19G remain
There is plenty of space on the disk (19 Gbytes), but there is no way
to make "diskcheck" happy- the smallest "cutoff" it accepts is 99% and
obviously this disk is >99% "full" (heh!).
I think the check for "percentage" usage was fine in the good old days
of small disks. Today, we should probably set the "diskcheck"
thresholds in units of storage (Gbytes or Mbytes).
Would the diskcheck maintainers accept a patch to implement this?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sure :) /me accepts patch happily
