System - Overflow tmp

Description

There should be no overflow mounted /tmp. This happens when you have no /tmp partition and / runs full. In this case the kernel mounts an 1MB /tmp partition which is unusable in normal operation.

Solution

umount overflow

Check Script: system-tmp-overflow.sh

#!/bin/bash

if grep -q "^overflow.*/tmp" /proc/mounts; then result_failed "/tmp is overflow mounted!" fi
