Iam hosting a Ruby on Rails Application on a Linode with 96 GB storage. All the images of my application are stored on amazon and they are fetched from amazon. Thus my linode should have a minimum of 80 GB storage free.
But when the log files of the application exceed 200 Mb I get the error:
Errno::ENOSPC: No space left on device
and my website goes down.
I enabled log rotation for my application on daily basis with the following code in file /etc/logrotate.conf:
But now I have started getting the same error twics a day so I changed my config settings on the basis of size as:
I also moved the logrotate file from /etc/cron.daily to /etc/cron.hourly so that the logrotate cronjob runs each hour and rotate the log if it exceeds 1M. I restarted the apache.
But when I checked after an hour my files sizes were greater than 1M. Thus the logrotate cronjob didnt work after every hour. When I forcefully rotate the log using the command:
sudo /usr/sbin/logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.conf
then the log files gets rotated and the files size decrease.
I am not able to figure out why this configuration doesnt work. Moreover when the space on linode is 80 GB how does it affect if log files exceeds 200 Mb. What is the way to allocate more space to log directory?
As suggested I ran
df -ih to check if Iam running out of inodes. The follwoing output I get:
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/xvda 2.2M 263K 2.0M 12% /
devtmpfs 174K 2.0K 172K 2% /dev
none 174K 1 174K 1% /dev/shm
none 174K 33 174K 1% /var/run
none 174K 2 174K 1% /var/lock
none 174K 1 174K 1% /lib/init/rw
Thus my inodes are almost free. Iam not running out of inodes.
The output of
df -h is as:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda 9.5G 8.7G 325M 97% /
devtmpfs 1010M 112K 1010M 1% /dev
none 1010M 0 1010M 0% /dev/shm
none 1010M 52K 1010M 1% /var/run
none 1010M 0 1010M 0% /var/lock
none 1010M 0 1010M 0% /lib/init/rw
My disk space is really less. How should I proceed?
Please help.Many Thanks!
