    Hi,

    Just noticed on a vps:

    [root@vm /]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/ploop43263p1 70G 67G 517M 100% /
    none 32G 4.0K 32G 1% /dev
    none 32G 0 32G 0% /dev/shm

    Size:70G
    Used: 67G
    Avail: 517M <<-- ??? shouldnt that be about 3G?

    Hi Dave,

    Inside ploop based containers ordinary ext4 is used.
    I guess you miss space reserved for privileged processes.

    Please check with
    tune2fs -l /dev/ploop43263p1

    Unfortunately this command should be run from Hardware Node with default permissions.

    Number of reserved blocks could be changed by

    tune2fs -m

    Best regards,
    Konstantin
