    Unanswered: AIX File system

    Hi , I have the following directory structure on AIX server:

    I have issued df command to identify space on the filesystem:

    df -g /database -> 4G
    df -g /database/test -> 8G
    df -g /database/test/temp -> 8G

    Could someone help me to understand this please ?

    1. Does this mean /database and /database/test are 2 different file systems ?

    2. What is the command/tool I can use to find out fragmentation on the file system (/database/test) ? When I df -g the /database/test file system, it says 1.5G available. But when I try to FTP a small file(.ixf), it says not enough space. I'm guessing this due to fragmentation ? If so can I defrag this ?

    Thanks for your help.

    it looks like you have 2 Filesystems!
    df -G (or -k) on any directory shows the filesystem and the size of it.
    > df -k /etc
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda2 13409152 4605876 8122124 37% /

    Fragmentation is not your Problem with the FTP-Transfer. Maybe a permission issue?
