According to the FAQ you linked, wouldn't a good smattering of "sync ; sync ; sync ; sync ; sync" cause the the two to reflect the sizes accurately? This problem has been going on for some time now, so I have more than exceeded the recommendation to "wait up to 30 seconds". It does appear that softupdates are on, if that matters. deathray# dumpfs /var | grep -i soft flags soft-updates As the FAQ and Neal's response point out, this is where logs go, but I have cleaned out logs several times over the last few months, so that doesn't appear to be the problem: deathray# du -sh /var/log 1.5M /var/log I am also not sure what to make of the 5% inode usage on this volume: deathray# df -hi /var Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on /dev/da0d 248M 214M 15M 94% 1720 31302 5% /var --j. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
