Plesk Server Health Parameter - Partition Utilization

Discussion in 'Outages' started by m0nk3y, Jun 13, 2011.

  1. #1
    Hi

    I have a Dedicated Server with Fasthosts. They won't help at all with support, they say it is all self-managed and they only help with hardware problems.

    I have received an e-mail about server health parameter warnings every few minutes for the last few days. I have posted the contents of the email below.

    Can anyone help me...what is the problem? How do I solve it?

    
    Server: dn1.my-server.com
    
    Server health parameter "Disk > Partition "/var" utilization" changed its status from "green" to "yellow".

    Did you try to run fsck to solve the problem? We did not see such problem under plesk, however we provide only cPanel and DA solutions.

    I just tried:-
    fsck /var/
    Code (markup):
    and got a few this message:
    WARNING!!!  Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause
    SEVERE filesystem damage.
    
    Do you really want to continue (y/n)? yes
    
    /dev/md3: recovering journal
    Code (markup):
    I said 'Yes'
    
    /dev/md3: recovering journal
    
    fsck.ext3: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to re-open /dev/md3
    e2fsck: io manager magic bad!
    Code (markup):
    Any ideas? The emails only seem to warn of the issue on /var - :(
