how to get rid of 100% inodes
Suddenly from this afternoon my site stops working. then i find out its the inodes that gone to 100% was the reason. then after many searching i found the following article and that solved my issue. but not entirely.
No space left on device – running out of Inodes
i followed above tutorial and freed up 5% of innodes by removing only one folder /usr/src with the following command.
rm -rf /usr/src
now i just want to be confirm about 1 thing. that command only delete bad empty files not important files as well? because i have just delete one folder with that command and freed up 5% inodes. but i have couple of more folders with large number of files but im a bit scared to apply this with those.
because after the above command now i can see the whole src folder is deleted.
