    Hi and welcome

    The /db/data mountpoint seems even more critical for me, as you might run into the problem of inconsistent database files.
    Depending on how important that database is I would probably look into that first.
    Decide if there are files that can be deleted. Maybe old database dumps?
    If not or if you cant tell, then I would suggest to shutdown the database.
    It is better to do it controlled than to wait until the database will crash because of lack of disk space.

    For the /home:
    Use "du" to determine the largest directories and then ask the users to clean up.

    Hi sir Irithori.

    The possible solution to fix the home is to ask user to clean, but sir Irithori, i already do that, i clean some user and erase not necessary files on users but the space on my suse linux is still the same? what you think the problem thats why the users cant clean the files on it?

    Either you didnt delete enough or the files are still held open by an application.
    fyi: By default, there is a 5% margin of a disk, that only root can use. So depending on which files were deleted, it may not affect the 100%.

    But ok, if there are no more files that can be deleted, then the disk is full.
    Can you add more disks or better raids and then distribute the homedirs?

    Sorry, but your english is hard to understand.

    Ok, so you deleted 13GByte of that 50GByte /home partition.
    Now your problem is no longer disk space, but speed?

    You could track which application uses IO with the usual tools:
    vmstat, iostat, iotop.
