  • 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).

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