while reading about linux,I got the following:
/var directory may be put in its
own filesystem so that growth of the files can be accommodated and the file sizes do not fatally affect the system.
when I tried to find out the
file system for
$ df - Th ,I got..
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 ext4 141G 19G 116G 14% / none tmpfs 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev devtmpfs 1.5G 4.0K 1.5G 1% /dev tmpfs tmpfs 294M 1.2M 293M 1% /run none tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none tmpfs 1.5G 38M 1.4G 3% /run/shm none tmpfs 100M 60K 100M 1% /run/user
here I am not getting
mounted on attribute, so what type of
file system is associated with
/var exactly? how do I find it?
