Am I missing something here or is my VPS provider to blame?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.

I built/maintain a WordPress eCommerce store for a local small business. They are going through a transition (partners split, new company name, new company assets, blah blah) so I am building a new site on a new VPS, with a new VPS provider. I found a great deal:
4 CPU cores, 2GB RAM, 2GB Swap, 2TB Bandwidth, 50GB RAID10 SSD for $6/mo.

It's running CentOS 6.4, on OpenVZ. I have my site running and I also have Webmin installed. Webmin tells me that the drive is full (41.34GB used, 41.34GB total) when I know dang well I don't have 41.34GB on this VPS. It has Nginx, PHP-FPM, Varnish, APC, WordPress, about 8 plugins, and a few uploaded pictures. Should be less than 2GB (not counting the kernel, which I don't think matters with OpenVZ VPS).
Code:
[root@VPS1 log]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs             42G  1.5G     0 100% /
none                  1.0G  4.0K  1.0G   1% /dev
none                  1.0G     0  1.0G   0% /dev/shm
[root@VPS1 log]#

This is about the only command I know if to check disk space. This to me looks like they thin provisioned 42GB from a SAN, and that SAN is full? Since this VPS isn't in production yet, it's not a huge deal but if they are over provisioned on storage then I will definitely be having a conversation with them. Can anyone think of what I can check to see if I am at fault here?

Less than 2 minutes after I open a ticket with my provider, I get an email stating that it's being escalated to L2, and then I find this:
Code:
[root@VPS1 log]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs             50G  1.5G   49G   3% /
none                  1.0G  4.0K  1.0G   1% /dev
none                  1.0G     0  1.0G   0% /dev/shm
[root@VPS1 log]#

Yeah, think they goofed on something or they had a SAN die. Either way, it's working now and hopefully I will find out from them what happened.
