I have installed a standalone mongo 2.6 in amazon ec2. The instance has reach the limit of disk space and it doesnt run now. I have set before the smallfiles=true in mongod.conf file, but for some reason this doesn't work neither. The log file says:
2015-03-12T19:41:26.881+0000 [initandlisten] ERROR: Insufficient free space for journal files 2015-03-12T19:41:26.881+0000 [initandlisten] Please make at least 422MB available in /data/journal or use --smallfiles 2015-03-12T19:41:26.881+0000 [initandlisten] exception in initAndListen: 15926 Insufficient free space for journals, terminating
I tried to set journal path in another volume >
sudo ln -s /journal /data/journal
But this doesn't work neither and logs the same error above :(
I want to mantain the /data (with all dbs files) in the same disk , I only want to move the journal path to another disk , is that possible? Please , any help is welcome!
pd: I used before tune2fs for get more space , but now I don't have it.
