command df and du reports different output

Post by ludaca » 2020/09/04 15:08:02

Hello,

CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)
df -k /
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/centos-root 291533568 238124656 53408912 82% /

du -sh /
6.5G

Already run lsof - no "dead" files.
System rebooted - unchanged.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Step 1: run yum update. Your system is over 3 years out of date. The current version is 7.8.

Resolved.
Removed /var/lib/docker/* and rebooted.
Thanks for referring to my post.

I guess that "df -k /" only shows the root file system, and
"du -sh /" includes all files, directories and file systems.
