comment Linux server out of space
What to do if after > /var/log/file the space on disk still at 100%? The log file seems to be empty... but only after restarting the program that writes on this log file the space is recovered. Is there a way to recover the disk space without restarting the program?

Thanks @TomTom your suggestion looks great, for now I am going with the DL380 G5 with Xen but really looking forward to try your suggestion.

thank you for your answer seems to be promising, still a 'workaround' but considering my actual situation I will give it a try

@kmarsh I could do that from a local server yes but, sometimes I need to make 2 or 3 hops to reach the server that contains the required data using ssh or ssh plus tunnels. Maybe I need to investigate if one server before the server that has the data allows the usage of cron... thanks. @Duane these servers aren't rebooted very often still you are right I will need to document this somewhere and make everybody aware of it if I decide to use ktower's solution... thanks

These servers aren't for hosting web pages, most of them are running Oracle DBMS and Tomcat and sadly we only have user accounts that are allowed to ran certain scripts and limited by the tools available, that's why I am looking for an alternative to Cron and yes ktower's suggestion looks promising. These machines are been administered on-site on each client infrastructure so there's no easy way to pick a new provider.

Yes on some of the servers Linux is running on other Solaris or HP-UX is, but bash still available on all of them. I am planning to run the scripts every month or so.
