Errno::ENOSPC: No space left on device

(Avorio) #1

Hi there,

I’m trying to rebuild Discourse but I’m running into this error:

FAILED
--------------------
RuntimeError: cd /var/www/discourse && su discourse -c 'bundle exec rake assets:precompile' failed with return #<Process::Status: pid 4266 exit 1>
Location of failure: /pups/lib/pups/exec_command.rb:105:in `spawn'
exec failed with the params {"cd"=>"$home", "hook"=>"bundle_exec", "cmd"=>["su discourse -c 'bundle install --deployment --verbose --without test --without development'", "su discourse -c 'bundle exec rake db:migrate'", "su discourse -c 'bundle exec rake assets:precompile'"]}

** FAILED TO BOOTSTRAP ** please scroll up and look for earlier error messages, there may be more than one

Scrolling up I found:

Errno::ENOSPC: No space left on device - /var/www/discourse/tmp/cache/assets/production/sprockets/c88f54c1a16e5204b2aebda1caf30657

I tried locating the /var/www/discourse/ directory, but it doesn’t exist:

ubuntu@discourse:/var/discourse$ cd /var/www/discourse
-bash: cd: /var/www/discourse: No such file or directory

Any thoughts on how to recover from this?

Weirdly, I seem to be out of disk space indeed:

ubuntu@discourse:/var/discourse$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1      7.8G  6.7G  700M  91% /
none            4.0K     0  4.0K   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
udev            996M   12K  996M   1% /dev
tmpfs           201M  356K  200M   1% /run
none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none           1001M     0 1001M   0% /run/shm
none            100M     0  100M   0% /run/user

How did this happen? This is a new install with less than 50 topics.

I have built and rebuilt the app a few times; could that be reason I ran out of disk space? If so, then the question is: why? Could this be because of temporary files that were not being deleted?

I thought /var/www/discourse was a good place to start, but it seems like it isn’t.

Where should I look?


(Sam Saffron) #3

can you start with a

./launcher cleanup

I bet you have 2 docker images going


(Avorio) #4

Thanks, @sam, but that unfortunately didn’t solve the problem:

ubuntu@discourse:/var$ cd /var/discourse/
ubuntu@discourse:/var/discourse$ sudo ./launcher cleanup

The following command will
- Delete all docker images for old containers
- Delete all stopped and orphan containers

Are you sure (Y/n): Y

scripts/docker-gc: line 69: 1443439271 - : syntax error: operand expected (error token is "- ")

It’s still using a ton of space:

I need to start running cleanup from a lightweight image …

what does docker images return … do a docker rmi on the old discourse image …

also 7 gigs is really tight considering our images are 1.5gigs (once you factor in bootstrapping and so on)

Why are all those images there?!


(Sam Saffron) #7

do a docker rmi on those images.


(Avorio) #8

Done. All deleted. Here’s the disk space situation:

ubuntu@discourse:/var/discourse$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1      7.8G  4.5G  2.9G  61% /

none            100M     0  100M   0% /run/user

Question is: why did I have 5 images?


(Sam Saffron) #9

My guess… somehow these failed builds are leaving behind an image, we should investigate that @mpalmer at some point.

Also another possibility is that you are running an old version of bash and launcher is relying on features you do not have.


(Avorio) #10

But the first failure was caused by lack of disk space. There was no other cause for failure, which suggests to me that your assumption is not correct. Are we missing something else here?

Would you like me to provide more info on their versions? Let me know how and I’ll happily do that.

Thanks again, @sam, for your help. The forum is back up now!


(Sanzhar Aubakirov) #11

This is still a problem.

Today I have same Errno::ENOSPC: No space left on device

I was rebuilding app a few times before this error occur. ./launcher cleanup helped

@sam I’m trying to remove an existing image but I can’t seem to remove it

I’m not sure how else to free up space on my system (I’m not exactly a tech guru)

Any suggestions?

I have very limited free space on discourse right now and I’m afraid it may crash or something.
I understand my total space is quite small but that’s because I’m hosting on AWS (t2.micro)

Also I get this error when I try to run cleanup:

root@ip-172-31-27-60:/var/discourse# sudo ./launcher cleanup

Do a backup and then:


#14

I wanted to login to the admin UI from browser just now but I think it may be broken due to the lack of space?
(The whole layout of the page is suddenly all wrong)

Is this the guide I want to follow? I already have a good amount of data inside the discourse and I don’t want to mess it up.


#15

Managed to fix the issue

  • expanded to a larger volume on AWS, which allowed me to do cleanup and also rebuild the app

Initially got a 502 bad gateway but that was also fixed after I rebuilt the app
Seems to be working normally now, thanks @Falco!


(xiasummer) #16

Hi, I encounter the same problem. So you mean I should ask the KVM company to provide more space first?

Do you have anyother method to solve the “No space left” problem?

Yours


(Rafael dos Santos Silva) #17

If you are still low on space after a successful cleanup you need to buy more space.
