Re: Increasing size of root volume

It would be interesting to know what is actually getting 'full' ... /tmp? /home? /var? If it's consistently one sub directory (I'm guessing it is), you might mount a big (or at least big enough) EBS volume there. I almost always do this for /home, and fairly often do this for /tmp ... or use the ephemeral drives striped together for /tmp.

Good luck, and do let us know what ends up working for you.

Hi Marco,

This might be of interest --


"Launching an Amazon EBS-backed instance with increased root device storage disk size"

Let me know how it goes!
