Where did all the storage go or not enough disk space on /data

Hi,
not a bloody noob on Linux here. So I did a little research also here on the forum regarding my issue but couldn’t find any answers.
So let’s start:
Setting
Running HassOS on a Synology Disk Station with the build in Hypervisor (Virtual Machine Manager). I installed the HassOS by downloading the prepared OVA image/disk. Since I didn’t change anything I left the size of 10GB.
How I got Problems
I run my weekly (manual) update-cycle to see if there were any update for HassOS and Hom Assistant Core. Both had nev versions. So I first upgraded HassOS and then I my intention was to update the Core.
It failed, no big deal:

20-10-18 12:26:17 INFO (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant.core] Update Home Assistant to version 0.116.4

20-10-18 12:31:07 WARNING (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant.core] Update Home Assistant image failed

So it is low on data… Since I had some issues with on former installation with a really huge Home Assistant Database, I didn’t care about the past and deleted it. It was only about 200 MB or so. So not much help from that.

So I dug a little deeper:

Ok, 8.1GB used disk-space they have to be somewhere right?

So 300 MB is not too much, and it seems I am inside a container, right?

Now my questions:

  • Are there any processes outside of the (for me) visible filestructure which are runnig wild (and consuming 8GB)?
  • How to access the host on shell-level?
  • I’d like to stick with the VM on the Synology. I am able to extend the virtual disk. How to extend the filesystem without access to the docker-host?

You might want to check any stale docking containers (you can use portainer), i found a couple of gigs there :wink:

Yep, thanks. I found 7GB in images (not containers). Two could be removed. The others were all used by running containers. It freed 1GB and I could update.
Anyways, what is strange: under “Home” is see 18 running containers and 2 stopped. In the dashboard only 2 running and no stopped. What did I miss?
I’ll try to extend the VHDD now.

Short update and (for now) satisfactory solution:

  • Expanded VHDD in Synology Virtual Machine Manager to 60GB
  • Installed SSH & Web Terminal from the Community Addon Store
  • Added pated, e2fsprogs, e2fsprogs-extra (last one contains resize2fs)
ssh:
  username: hassio
  password: password
  authorized_keys: []
  sftp: false
  compatibility_mode: false
  allow_agent_forwarding: false
  allow_remote_port_forwarding: false
  allow_tcp_forwarding: false
zsh: true
share_sessions: false
packages:
  - parted
  - e2fsprogs
  - e2fsprogs-extra
init_commands: []
  • Expanded /dev/sda8
resize2fs /dev/sda8
  • Done
