    Have you seen this? VirtFS Jailed Shell | cPanel & WHM Documentation running the script at the end could solve it or do you recommend to ignore it?

    There is a script to clear orphaned VirtFS mounts: /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/clear_orphaned_virtfs_mounts --clearall

    @analyst-ct - I'm assuming that is the number of inodes for the entire system based on the large size, correct? If you've cleared VirtFS as much as you can (there is no way to permanently get rid of it) and you are still using a lot of inodes, you'll need to find another area where you can free space. Much like checking disk space on a server with the "du -h" command, you can check inode usage in your directories the same way. You can run: df -i --max-depth 1
    starting in / to see where you are using the most inodes, and then work through the directory structure of the system until you find an area where you can remove files to free up some inodes. Typically, a large email directory will consume a large amount of inodes, as those are very small files, but it could be anywhere on the machine where there is disk usage.
