What is the purpose of the /run/user/1000, tmpfs filesystem that appears in df?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We could see /run/user/1000 filesystem , is this a symptom of any issue?
  • Why do I see multiple of tmpfs filesystems / partitions in the output of df?
  • Why do I see a /run/user/$UID directory when the user is not logged in (i.e. does not appear in the output of w or who)?
