How can I find out why my storage space on Amazon EC2 is full

0 votes

When I run df -h on my Amazon EC2 server, this is the output:

[ec2-user@ip-XXXX ~]$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/xvda1 25G 25G 0 100% / tmpfs 4.0G 0 4.0G 0% /dev/shm

For some reason, something is eating up my storage space.

I am trying to find all of the big files/folders and this is what I get back:

[ec2-user@ip-XXXX ~]$ sudo du -a / | sort -n -r | head -n 10 993580 / 639296 /usr 237284 /usr/share 217908 /usr/lib 206884 /opt 150236 /opt/app 150232 /opt/app/current 150224 /opt/app/current/[deleted].com 113432 /usr/lib64

How can I find out what's eating my storage space?
