In our app we have only windows servers beside the cases we use redis queues. This case , we use unix server created by amazon.

As you can see we do not have a lot of space available and we want to make sure redis has enough space to work without getting stuck.

I am little bit new in unix and after reading some data about the unix file system i still was not fully sure how can i give the redis drive (it is in the home directory) more space. I see the mnt that has a lot of space but read it is temporary for cd-rom and network drives.

Can you help me figure out how to get more space to my redis ? If it is possible i prefer not to re-install the redis server.

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1            7.9G  6.7G  880M  89% /
udev                  7.4G  4.0K  7.4G   1% /dev
tmpfs                 3.0G  152K  3.0G   1% /run
none                  5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none                  7.4G     0  7.4G   0% /run/shm
/dev/xvdb             414G   30G  364G   8% /mnt
