I am not very good with ubuntu in general so forgive me if this question is a dumb one.
I recently started to use the Google Cloud service to mess around with some Machine Learning related things. I was busy pickling a database when I got [Errno 28] No Space Left on Device. I initially thought nothing of it and cleared a couple files and tried again, but I kept getting the error.
My instance is about 500 GB in size, but the files that I am currently playing around with take up less than 20 GBs of storage.
When I try
sudo du /home -sh /* I get this:
476G /home 14M /bin 46M /boot 0 /dev 7.3M /etc 0 /initrd.img 0 /initrd.img.old 136M /lib 3.9M /lib32 4.0K /lib64 16K /lost+found 4.0K /media 4.0K /mnt du: cannot access '/proc/5435/task/5435/fd/4': No such file or directory du: cannot access '/proc/5435/task/5435/fdinfo/4': No such file or directory du: cannot access '/proc/5435/fd/3': No such file or directory du: cannot access '/proc/5435/fdinfo/3': No such file or directory 0 /proc 24K /root 8.6M /run 13M /sbin 8.0K /snap 4.0K /srv 0 /sys 24K /tmp 6.0G /usr 2.9G /var 0 /vmlinuz 0 /vmlinuz.old
And when I try using df to figure out hoe much memory I am using I get this:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 24G 0 24G 0% /dev tmpfs 4.8G 8.6M 4.8G 1% /run /dev/sda1 485G 485G 427M 100% / tmpfs 24G 0 24G 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 24G 0 24G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 4.8G 0 4.8G 0% /run/user/1001
Where is the 100% of memory usage coming from? I deleted a 39.9 GB sized dataset the other day, yet that only freed up a couple MBs of space.
I currently have Ubuntu 16.04 installed.
