Who is stealing (eating) my disk space??
Everybody knows (i mean most of the users) that a Linux box is haunted by mysterious daemons. They are invisible, invincible and sometimes do a lot of weird stuff!.
Recently i’ve been facing “No disk space” problem with my $HOME. It happens every two weeks after i cleanup. I’ve been using the same $HOME for around 1.5 years (3-4 upgrades/installation). I cleaned up all the unused applications “.$application” directories.. nope .. not much changed. Then when i was cribing about this to srinidhi over lunch, he suggested me to take a look at “.beagle” . And yes he was right ! I have a 25GB /home and “.beagle” was using 11 GB of it 😦 . Looks like it maintains a mirror of my $HOME!!
Bad daemon beagle ! There should be a option to set the maximum cache size that beagle can use or some interface to check how much diskspace beagle is using for cache !
