My disk is full, an .MAD file in tmpdir takes up all the space on the file system (179G out of 189G)

from log:

[Warning] mysqld: Disk is full writing '/var/tmp/#sql_b6f_0.MAD' (Errcode: 28). Waiting for someone to free space

Can I stop mariadb, or do I need to free some space first and then stop it?

  • I just freed 200 megs on the disk and that space was eaten up in seconds. I have a few gigs left I can free but i need to somehow stop mariadb from eating that space first? – FelixHJ Jun 11 '14 at 8:03

I was able to do a service mysqld stop and that deleted the files in tmpdir, that solved the problem....
