/home folder - 8G?


(Mvogel4949) #1

I have a system where my /home folder is over 8G which seems way too high. Any thoughts as to why it is so large? The only file in it is the asterisk user file

cd /home
du -sh *

And take it from thereā€¦


(Mvogel4949) #3
[root@freepbx ~]# cd /home
[root@freepbx home]# du -sh *
8.2G    asterisk

8.2G is much larger than any other system

du -a /home/asterisk | sort -n -r | head -n 10

delete or truncate that. You may want to give a look inside to see what is filling it but in general it should rotate

No harm in deleting the pm2.log?

It is just a log. If it is that big something may be going wrong but in general no you can delete it or

echo > /home/asterisk/.pm2/pm2.log

to truncate
