I have AIX Version 5.3. I have deleted some file from the file system but the space not released.

The inode is okay. Is there any permanent fix for this?

I did the same, but can't restart the application again and again. Please suggest. –  Octopus Apr 26 '11 at 8:27
Please suggest what? That you rewrite the application? –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 26 '11 at 8:29
