Untrustable Inode Usage with "df -i" on OCFS2 File System (Doc ID 1275440.1)

Last updated on APRIL 28, 2020

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version 1.2.5-1 to 1.4.7 [Release OCFS2]
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

You may want to check OCFS2 file system's inode usage with df -i and notice that it doesn't correspond to the number of file on that volume.

Say "/dev/mapper/mpath11p1" is an OCFS2 volume mounted at /oracle1, you could see

$ df -i /oracle1
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/mpath11p1
4095947 3474932 621015 85% /oracle1
$ sudo find /oracle1 | wc -l
335
$
