How come my 20 GB disk is full!?

Ubuntu 20.04, Asterisk + Free PBX 15.

My server is just sitting idle and ready to go, we’re not yet using it. Last week I was notified that the 20 GB disk was full. I managed to remove 6 GB or so, but there are still plenty of gigabytes of irrelevant log-data left on this device…!

What’s piling up!? I understand, Fail2ban is saving logs…

Are the logs rotating properly? Are the log cron jobs running? We had an issue where the full log rotation job was broken, which caused the full log to never rotate. It stayed that way until the drive maxed out.

There are two commands that will help you here.

df -h

This command will output your storage values in human readable format

du -sh *

Run this command in your root directory first. This will show you the size of each directory. Then, you can navigate to the directory of choice. For example, /var/log and run that command again. It will show you the size of all your directories.

This is how you can identify where all of your storage is going and then decide how you may need to modify items.

Thank you all for comments! What I did yesterday was to turn off the swap file.

These files remain for some reason:

[email protected]:/var/log$ sudo du -sh * | grep G
1.1G journal

I never manage to clear och to clean the journal… But at least there are space left on the device at the moment.

I’m still curious about the rotating log files! :slight_smile:

The Asterisk log is about 1 GB, full:

What’s the size of your Asterisk log!?

The freepbx.log contain loads of information… help me solve these things!
