Hello, how can i resize /tmp on OpenVZ node server? During vzdumps Rsync, i believe it was unable to store some data on /tmp because of low space. So vzdump failed for some VM.

INFO: starting first sync /home/vps/180 to /var/tmp/vzdumptmp878731
INFO: rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes to socket [sender]: Broken pipe (32)

So i thought it may help to increase tmp size?

-----------
Partition layout:
[[email protected]*** ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md2 9.7G 2.2G 7.0G 24% /
/dev/md3 1.8T 161G 1.6T 10% /home
tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /dev/shm

What do you think, it is wise to make symlink from /var/tmp to /home/tmp for example??

// Update: i think it failed because / partition on which is /tmp had not enough disk space and i fixed it by moving /vz to /home partition which has plenty space. Or i fixed it by setting vzdump --tmpdir to something on /home partition where is enough space.
