Wrong Disk Usage - A Bug?


#1

I am running Openwrt v18.06.1 on TpLink TD-W8980 v1 and there seems to be a bug in disk usage stats that display from df command. I am using external HDD 500 GB with the router, 2 partitions are on the driver, both formatted as ext4. First partition is for the root and has a capacity of 1 GB, next one is the remainder of the drive.

Everything works as expected but the command shows a little different results:

root@AhmarRouter:~# df -h

/dev/root                 5.0M      5.0M         0 100% /rom

As it shows, the used part shows a very large number in there although that is not possible because of the size of the partition. One more thing is that the LuCI shows 993.11 MBs as free space in Software tab but the free percentage is around 104%. It is definitely inconsistent.
