The Question is:
We are receiving a warning that our disk drive is 92% full (on a 2.1 GB drive,
it shows 4110480 total blocks and 293085 free blocks). What is the best way
to determine what file is causing this disk drive to be used so heavily? Is
there a way to list al
l files on the disk by order of size? This is backup system to another
identical system, so we know it should only use approximately 369 MB or 720801
The Answer is :
OpenVMS itself returns no such message -- accordingly, this would
appear to be a layered product, third-party package, or local software.
The DIRECTORY command offers various useful options -- though you
do have a very old OpenVMS VAX version -- such as the following:
This command displays only files with a minimum size of 1000 blocks.
Also of interest will likely be an ANALYZE/DISK pass, as this can
identify unused space remaining within the disk structure.
Additionally, the disk quota mechanism -- when the quota for each user
is set to a value larger than the disk itself -- can be used to track
the disk use.
