Brocade 24000 File System

HI

I have 2x Brocade 24000 switches with Fabric OS 5.3.1b. Both of them show 80 % used capacity of the file system. I want to do some cleanup before doing any upgrade. Can some cleanup be done on the file system so that space used can be reduced at around 50%

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/root               120112     96600     23512  80% /

/dev/hda2               120128     96576     23552  80% /mnt

Thank you TechHelp24 for taking the time to answer this question

I'd run the command with both admin and root user, even though some free space was retrieved the switch still show 80 % space used

Anymore idea

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root               120112     96584     23528  80% /
/dev/hda2               120128     96576     23552  80% /mnt

Re: Brocade 24000 File System

here is the result my LAB 24K, full loaded FabOS Rel 5.3.2a

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root               120128     98008     22120  82% /
/dev/hda1               120112     97992     22120  82% /mnt

The available space is variable according the config. I have here a active config with around 30 Zone, four ISL-trunking , and all 128 Port are connected.

Sincerily, it work fine without any issue since around 4-5 Years.

I know this problem with a Flash Full by FabOS prior as Release 4.1.1b and 4.2.1b, Brocade closed this defect in the next relese in November 2003.

Thank you for you quick respond

For now I will monitor the the free space to make sure that the FOS switches don't go over 90% of used space
