We use Linux Centos 5.4. 64 bits with the ext3 file system:
[xxxx at node2 ~]$ df -Th
Sys. de fich. Type Tail. Occ. Disp. %Occ. Monté sur
/dev/sda3 ext3 2,9G 2,6G 105M 97% /
/dev/sda5 ext3 219G 188M 208G 1% /tmp
/dev/sda1 ext3 99M 18M 77M 19% /boot
tmpfs tmpfs 5,9G 0 5,9G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sdb1 ext3 917G 414G 457G 48% /scratch
master0:/home nfs 5,5T 2,2T 3,4T 40% /home
nfs 27G 16G 11G 60% /usr/local
master0:/opt nfs 15G 7,6G 5,9G 57% /opt
as you can see the /scratch partition is not full...
I think we do not have file system/room limitation because when I
re-run the job that fails it usually works.

oh oh I need to read about that here...
