Low disk space on device containing temporary directory (/opt/atlassian/jira/temp)

Hi All,

I'm using official docker image for running Jira in datacenter mode. After starting the instances, I have below error under Instance healthcheck of "Troubleshooting and support tools"

Low disk space on device containing temporary directory (/opt/atlassian/jira/temp) - 2 GB of free space remaining. Index backup and recovery may fail.

This directory is under docker container and do not have much files inside it. I have enough space in shared home as well as jira local home which is mounted to EFS and EBS volumes. Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot and fix this error?

@radhika.punchepady  The application believes that there is not enough space.  I would suggest checking how large your index is and then making the proper adjustments to ensure that there is enough space available.  

Thanks Brant for answer. As I was having EFS and additional EBS for home directories, I missed to check root volume in server(that was silly). Resolved issue after extending root volume.
