Hello All,

Auditing is not turned on. 
And redo and archiving is handled in 2 more separate filesystems. 
So, diag_dest is on its own. 
Admittedly, adump holds *aud files; I really need to look closely at what those 

/ The real problem is this; I clean out the *aud and *trc files and this darn 
filesystem will not release the space. Doing a 'du' shows something like 
500Megs, df shows 2 Gigs.

And of course the file system being full wouldn't prevent re-writing the
contents of the existing on line logs (not to be considered a recommendation
to share .../diag/... and online logs, just acknowledging the possibility).

If arch is shared with /diag/, then that would get the archiver stuck.
(again, not a recommendation). It might also mean that news that the
archiver is stuck might not get printed. But if you were to share arch and
diag, diag getting full should tip you off...

yes, Oracle wouldn't hang up because logs cannot be written. (this is
not true fro online redo logfiles,
