disk full?

Linode Staff

My Dashboard says that 100% of the disk has been used, but when I run df -h I get:

$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root        20G  3.6G   15G  20% /
devtmpfs        3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs           3.9G  9.4M  3.9G   1% /run
tmpfs           3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs           798M     0  798M   0% /run/user/1000

That 100% figure you see on the dashboard just shows how much of your plan's available storage has been allocated to your disks; it doesn't represent your actual usage. To see that, you'd need to run a command like df -h from your Linode.
