Hello ,

We observed that in repostory 90% of all files are "zero size files".
Is it normal behaviour?
I think that this may affect another problem with inodes (on ext3).
All inodes expired on partition where we have store.
Anyone faced this issues?

output of df command showing no inode free left on /opt
$ df -i
