Excessive disk usage

[Solved] Excessive disk usage
There is nothing wrong going at my site currently but I am seeing that my server taking 25gb space in my disk, which shouldn't happen. 
As my db is about 300mb, files are about 10mb or so, and I don't know how much space sentora takes, but I think 25gb is too much as I don't have that much files or anything.

What could it be, server cache? If it is due to that, how to i clear server cache? 


 I notice that phpsysinfo shows under mounted file system : 

reiserfs                      /dev/simfs              (rw, usrquota, grpquota) - about 24gb , what is it?

/dev                       devtmpfs            none          (rw, relatime, mode=755, gid=500) - is about 2gb only.

[Solved] RE: Excessive disk usage
Check your log folder...
/var/logs/ and /var/sentora/logs/

If it is the logs filling up that quick, something is causing an excessive amount of logging. (But, In general the logs can get very big)

If by chance it is a log, and one is eating up 5gb in just a few days, then there is a serious problem on your server.

One of your websites could be compromised and somebody is uploading files to your server or a site has a LOT of errors being reported, especially if it is a high traffic site.

I'm not sure how you connect to your server, I use WinSCP which is like Filemanager. I can navigate through the folders and see the size of files and permissions and things like that. (And I do use it through SSH also, not just FTP).

If those logs are 'small', then check each domain's log folder. /var/sentora/logs/domains/

The answer is in the log files. It is not Sentora.

Regarding your mention of:

Quote:reiserfs                      /dev/simfs              (rw, usrquota, grpquota) - about 24gb , what is it?

A quick Google search tells us that it is related to disk space:

Quote:It means that your disk space on your VPS is getting full. /dev/simfs = your / = your VPS disk space. It could be an overall node issue, but it's more likely to be an issue specific to your VPS.
I run my own server (Ubuntu 14,04) and have a 500gb HDD on it, With 12 sites, a Sentora zppy repo, a file mirror site and other development sites and a Battlefield 2 game server, I am still only using 12% of space and my server has been online for over 2 years in this current configuration. (I had a Sentora on Windows previously.)

Thanks for telling my about "WinSCP". It's really good. I went to find out my file in the mentioned folder, and probably it's the SSL-accesslogs and errors, that are causing space to get so high. I will try to fix issue from my side regarding ssl and may be that will solve my problem.

Maybe you need to check the backups configuration, the backup compressed files take much space of your disk if you have set the backups purge so long.

No, issue wasn't due to backup. I don't use backup service and I only host single website. It was due to error logs and working to fix them.
