[lustre-discuss] MDT filling up

Dear all,

we have one of three MDTs filling up its disk space. It is running 2.12.5 on ldiskfs, but no data-on-metadata.
The inode usage is just 54%, corresponding to 477 M inodes.

There is a large directory tree with 353 M files. For each or many of these files, there is also a symlink.

This is about the only oddity of this MDT.
Could it be that those symlinks eat up all the remaining space somehow?
