Ubuntu :: Possible To Free Up The Ext3 Journal Space?

Dec 17, 2010

I'm still quite new on linux .. so please accept my question, even if I'm asking something stupid The fact is that I created some months ago a partition of 50 Gb to store my data and I used an ext3 filesystem with journal .. and the journal was about 1 Gb I thinkNow after a few months of usage I moved all my data to a new device and I noticed thapartition was completly emptied, in fact there was still about 10 Gb occupied.All data was moved away, so I think this might be the journal.

Now a few questions:1) Is it normal for a journal to occupy 1/5 of a device? 2) Is there a command or another way to free up the space occupied by the journal?3) Is there a better option in order of filesystem? Maybe it's better to use another one?I usually use ext3 for the system partition and for data storage partition,then I have a partition into where I store clonezilla images for backup purposesand I decided to use reiserfs for it in order to have more space available,even because it's always unmounted and I access onto it only for backup activities

Ubuntu :: Shrinking Ext3 Partition And Giving Free Space To NTFS?

Jul 13, 2010

Using a small hard drive (180 GB) dual booting windows XP for gaming and Ubuntu 9.10 for my other stuff during install I didnt know how much of each partition i would use, so i did 50-50 1 for ext3 and one for NTFSHowever after awhile it seems I have run out of space on my NTFS and have tons of unused space on my ext3.What I am wanting to do is shrink some of that ext3 down and give it it NTFS, I did a little searching and found a couple of old posts but I was a little sketchey on em. Simply looking for some personal Methods or Tools you have used and a starting point of how to use them.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: I/o Error Ext3 Journal

Apr 10, 2010

I have a 500Gb external disk (esata) used a part of a backup cycle. I tried to mount it for the next backup cycle and an i/o error was detected in the ext3 journal. I fixed the bad block but that lost the data in the block and ran fsck.ext3. This resulted in a damaged file system message and a scan of the disk and fsck finished ok. The disk mounts rw. I am not really sure if I should reformat this disk. I have copied the backups off the disk and in any case there are later backups. Reformatting is not a problem but takes time and I would prefer not to do it if it is not required but I want a clean file system

openSUSE 11.1 X86-64

Hardware :: EXT3 Aborting Journal - Kernel Soft Lockup ?

Feb 2, 2011

I have a system running CentOS 5.5 (194.32 Kernel) that has been working fine for about 8 months. I found it stuck one morning dumping a Soft Lockup Kernel message every 10 seconds and have been trying to find out what is going on - here is what I've done and found.

System is a Core i3 with 4Gb DDR3 ram and 2 1.5Tb SATA drives - everything is less then 1 year old with not too much load (this is a backup system for my server - a twin and the other works fine)

Intel Mobo: DM55HC

Rebooting the system (after doing a fsck on the drives with lots of errors) it runs for about 20 hours or so and then drops back into this problem.

Prior to going into the soft lockup it reports that the Journal has aborted on one drive or the other and drops into a Read Only FS.

There is nothing in the logs apart from the aborting journal message and the soft-lockup)

Tried fsck with badblocks check on the 2 mountpoints for both drives (dunno how to check the swap partition) - nothing I could see there.

I have tried memtest for about 36hours. No errors

I ran smartctl long tests on both drives. No Errors

Slackware :: Set The Journaling Mode Into Data=journal Mode Of Ext3

Jan 12, 2011

I was reading about ext3 feature and I have read about its journaling modes. I would like to ask what is the default journaling mode of ext3 fs in slackware(or is it in all distro using ext3)? I'll install slackware when my new pc arrive and the fs I will use will be ext3 and I like it to have data=journal mode for its journaling. I have read in some wiki how to set the journaling mode into data=journal mode.

Code: # tune2fs -O has_journal -o journal_data /dev/sdXY Do i need to issue this command or is this the default mode in ext3 in slackware?

Server :: Use System Monitor Via A VNC Connection The Free Disk Space Value Is 20GB Free On The Same Volume

May 18, 2011

I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.

Ubuntu :: Free Up Space By Deleting Old Kernels?

Feb 12, 2010

the method for freeing up space by deleting old kernels is made to sound very simple: go into Synaptic, select the outdated kernels, mark for complete removal, and Apply. Easy. But . . . when I mark a particular kernel for removal, Synaptic also wants to remove a lot of other things, some of which do not bear version numbers and seem generic. I am, to put it mildly, very leery of just telling it to go ahead, lest I end up losing things I should have kept and having a dead or at least crippled box.

Say, for example, that I mark for Complete Removal the line linux-image-2.6.22-15-generic; when I go to Apply that one deletion, I get a laundry list of to-die files that includes:
