How come os shows 6.5G used but I see only 3.6G in files/directories?
Running as root on an Amazon Linux AMI (seems like Centos), lots of free memory available, no swapping going on, no apparent file descriptors issue. The only thing I can think of is a log file that was deleted while applications append to it.
Disk space usage is slowly but continuously rising towards full capacity (~1k/min with very small decreases from time to time)
Any explanation? Solution?
