Unix Tip #4593- October 8, 2017

FULL OF FILESYSTEM INODES


We recently had a problem where a file system had 100% inode usage.
Unfortunately there isn't an easy way to search for directories with
a lot of files in them (1 file = 1 inode). And if the files are small,
you can't rely on du to help you out.

Here is a find command that will print all the directories in the
current filesystem, with the number of files (inodes) in that directory.

find . -xdev -type d -exec /bin/echo -n {} \; -exec sh -c "ls {} | wc -l" \;
