Error: ENOSPC: no space left on device [How to Solve]

In case of the above error, generally speaking, the server cannot create the file. At this time, we can find the problem from two directions

1. The disk is full of blocks or inodes

1. The disk block is full. Check the command df -h

[[email protected] ~]# df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda3        35G   28G  5.6G  83% /
tmpfs           504M     0  504M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/vda1       194M   47M  138M  26% /boot
/dev/vdb1       325G  118G  192G  38% /home/wwwroot/vdb1data

2. Disk inode is full. Check the command df -i

[[email protected] ~]# df -i
Filesystem       Inodes    IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/vda3       2289280  1628394  660886   72% /
tmpfs            128827        1  128826    1% /dev/shm
/dev/vda1         51200       44   51156    1% /boot
/dev/vdb1      21626880 21626880       0  100% /home/wwwroot/vdb1data

We found after comparison that the disk block occupied 38%, but the inode occupied 100%, it can be imagined that the disk fragmentation of small files are particularly large, we can go to the corresponding disk under the deletion of useless small files to solve the problem; we have to keep the following two ideas, of course, to solve the fundamental problem also need to buy mount more disks to solve;

Idea one: inode is full: delete useless small files as much as possible to release enough inode

Idea two: block full: delete as many useless large files as possible to free up enough blocks

Enospc means error no more hard disk space available

First, use df -hTto find that there is still a lot of disk space

Then find FSWatcher and field, and then view the contents related to the number of files that the system allows users to listen to

#Indicates the number of watches that can be added by the same user at the same time (watches are generally directory-specific and determine the number of directories that can be monitored by the same user at the same time)
[[email protected] JFReactNativeProject]# cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches
[[email protected] JFReactNativeProject]# echo 100000 > /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches
[[email protected] JFReactNativeProject]# cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches

The permanent effective method is as follows: (this method is recommended)

vim /etc/sysctl.conf
fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 100000(The latter value can be adjusted according to the actual situation)
Just add and run /sbin/sysctl -p 

Start validation:

Restart, normal
