    Hi to everybody.
    On my mailserver based on ISPConfig 3 I can see from the monitor section that sometimes my / partition is full for few minutes... then it'll come back normal again.
    This is the situation in a normal period:
    /dev/sda1	ext3	950M	227M	675M	26%	/
    tmpfs	tmpfs	2.0G	0	2.0G	0%	/lib/init/rw
    udev	tmpfs	10M	612K	9.5M	6%	/dev
    tmpfs	tmpfs	2.0G	8.0K	2.0G	1%	/dev/shm
    /dev/sda5	xfs	4.7G	815M	3.9G	18%	/usr
    /dev/sda6	xfs	4.7G	1023M	3.7G	22%	/var
    /dev/sda7	xfs	286G	2.2G	284G	1%	/home
    none	tmpfs	2.0G	74M	1.9G	4%	/tmp
    	fuse.glusterfs	137G	2.1G	135G	2%	/var/vmail
    I guess there are some temporary file that the system is creating for a bit.
    There is a way to avoid this problem?
    When the / partition is full, are the emails working anyway?

    this one:
    Filesystem  	Type  	Size  	Used  	Available  	Use%  	Mounted on
    /dev/sda1	ext3	950M	227M	675M	26%	/
    Sometimes for few minutes is been used 100%

    The problem is that your / partition is very small; I guess the problem is caused by temporary files. I'd make the / partition at least 5GB.

    Hi falko,
    thanks for the reply.
    My bad... I was running a backup script on the wrong partition... :p
