  • 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,

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

              Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
              by seqadmin




              The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

              Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
              by seqadmin


              In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
