April:

I'm just guessing here, but is it a journaling file system? Could the journal be eating up your available space?

HTH,
Mike

Please forgive the cross postings, but I am hoping that someone in all of the sets of eyes that see this might have an idea I haven't thought of. ***
Facts



aix 4.3.3
oracle 9.0.1.3
new instance, up for 2 weeks
locally managed tablespaces
nothing with autoextend on
file system at 7:01 am was at 98%
12:00 altered index tablespaces to nologging (but this did not change the file sizes... checked)
12:30 users (it is not a transactional instance... it is strictly reporting) started getting Ora-01114 errors corresponding (roughly) to when the file system hit 100%
The only thing in the file system are database files Nothing "could" have changed at OS level in that time..........to my knowledge
ITAR open, not much progress (re... "that can't happen")

DID happen... now trying desperately to find out WHY it happened. The 'problem' effected our biggest client. I need to find out what happened so it doesn't happen again...

File system now at 92%, but will need to add dasd in the near future for growth

one interesting finding found in the digging 9i created files of 2000m are 2097168384 k at os level 8i created and upgraded to 9i files of 2000m are 2097156096 at os level...

Anybody have any ideas how something that can't happen, did? Anyone ever seen this kind of weirdness before?
