- Not enough space on /tmp 6 answers
I'm not sure how this happened, but my /tmp directory is on a separate partition called "overflow" with only 1.1M allocated to it, which is 100%. This is preventing me from doing almost anything, including installing packages.
The server is Ubuntu 14.04 running on EC2. I recently increased the size of it's disk from 20G to 200G and rebooted the instance, and now
df -H shows:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 2.1G 8.2k 2.1G 1% /dev tmpfs 415M 390k 415M 1% /run /dev/xvda1 529G 39G 469G 8% / none 4.1k 0 4.1k 0% /sys/fs/cgroup none 5.3M 0 5.3M 0% /run/lock none 2.1G 0 2.1G 0% /run/shm none 105M 0 105M 0% /run/user overflow 1.1M 1.1M 0 100% /tmp
What is this "overflow" filesystem and how do I get /tmp off of it?
