  • about storage space on the server

    i have rented a server. after i have got my account and password i transferred my files to it. they are :

    Code:
    [WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$ ls -Shlr
    total 22G
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL  20K May 11 15:11 CK_clipped_log.txt
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL  21K May 11 14:51 CD_clipped_log.txt
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL 325M May 11 14:51 CD_clipped_single.fq
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL 355M May 11 15:11 CK_clipped_single.fq
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL 2.8G May 11 14:51 CD_clipped_R2.fq
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL 2.9G May 11 14:51 CD_clipped_R1.fq
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL 4.0G May 11 15:11 CK_clipped_R1.fq
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 WHL WHL 4.0G May 11 15:11 CK_clipped_R2.fq
    -rw-r----- 1 WHL WHL 7.5G May 30 10:43 R1.fq
    [WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$
    once i cat my files and it showed
    Code:
    cat: write error: No space left on device
    . then i realized i still did not know how much storage space i have given. then i typed this:
    Code:
    [WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$ df -h
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda3       167G  154G  4.2G  98% /
    tmpfs          1010G   72K 1010G   1% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda1       485M   41M  420M   9% /boot
    /dev/sdb1       1.1T   97G 1016G   9% /data
    /dev/sdc1        26T  2.7T   23T  11% /ds5020
    [WHL@server Data_for_assembly]$
    i am still new to Linux guys.

    so my question here are:

    the files i have transferred only is 21G , why it showed 154G is used? where is the other 133G space?

    what is the other lines meaning for $ df -h commend above?
    is it really the available space left now is only 4.2G? if so the files generated during the analysis could be more than 100G , then 4.2 G wont be merely enough for me ?

    please, i really need some advice here?!!!!!!

      @kurban910: It appears that the partition "/dev/sda3" which you can access as "/" is nearly full. What you should check is a listing of that space.

      Code:
      $ ls -alth /
      See what is taking up space there.

      Simplest explanation may be that whatever you have installed on this server (software along with annotation/indexes/sequences etc). You must have put them in "/" directory hierarchy, instead of installing under /ds2050 where most of the space is.

      As far what "df" means you can check the inline help by using the "man or info command"

      Code:
      $ man df
      (press "q" key to exit the help menu).

        hi @GenoMax,
        thanks for your reply, admin did not give me the much space in my home directory, and i was not given the othority for /boot, /data and ds5020, but /dev/shm. anyway i used the spase acomplished my tesk, thanks.

            For academic interest what was taking up space on the "/" partition?

              Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
              by seqadmin


              Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

              Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
              by seqadmin


              Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
