Directory /tmp is full on our server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 8) machine. Why does the directory /tmp is showing up as full?
[root@server1 tmp]# df /dev/mapper/VolGroup_ID_2-LogVol2 507748 481906 0 100% /tmp
When we do an ls -la on the directory, we cannot seem to find what's consuming the space. Is there a command we can use to recursively search the directories in /tmp to try to figure out what's consuming all the space? Our manual investigations of cd into the directories and doing ls -la's have turned up nothing.
