I need a bit of help from the ext3 filesystem folks I think. I'm
haveing a comprehension problem here. A snip from a df report:
/dev/hdd3 176100712 165509176 26340 100.3% /amandatapes
>From the above, there is about 10GB on the missing list! Amanda just
bailed out early because the disk was full, while the 2 figures on
the left claimed there should have been somewhere between 10GB and
11GB of space left, not the 26 megs shown above.
The output of a du . on that partition, before I ran the amflush, was
165509176 bytes total used out of 176100712 that df claimed it has
for a total, both in 1024 byte kilobytes.
So my question is: Where is the math broken? Both du and df, or my
Surely there cannot be 10+GB tied up in inodes and journals?
