This is the older server in the environment, that im stuck with a couple months more while this legacy set of severs sets to stand down soon. So im stuck with this install that the previous admin left. Fortunately, my new server is running like a top. So today, I come in, and I see this:
6441 Incr 89 322.1 G OK 18-Jan-13 00:31 d1035-full-diff-inc-Job
Incremental job, backs up 322GB of data.
[jhorne@... ~]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
50G 7.3G 40G 16% /
tmpfs 16G 76K 16G 1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 485M 137M 324M 30% /boot
1.3T 107G 1.1T 9% /data
68G 5.1G 59G 8% /home
As one can see, the server has about 140GB total. So how is that possible? This is the fileset this server is using:
Name = "Legacy Platform wData Backups"
signature = MD5
File = /
File = /boot
File = /home
File = /data
File = /tmp
File = /proc
File = /sys
File = /dev
File = /var/lib/pgsql
File = /var/lib/mysql
File = /var/log/lastlog
File = /var/spool/bacula
File = /.journal
File = /.fsck
This is boggling, not to mention it is eating up an extraordinate amount of storage space. 40 other servers might be doing the same thing. actually, I know of at least one that is, so maybe they all are.
Any ideas to begin trouble shooting this would be appreciated.

Case in point: this is the amount of data backed up.

This is the amount of data on the system right now. The two are
clearly not the same measurement. ;)

- how much data was on the system when it was backed up?
- sparse files
- examine the output of this command if it helps: echo list files
jobid=6441 | bconsole
- you might have to try SQL instead to see the file sizes etc
