Perhaps because du reports disk block usage, not total file size?

Hello all, I’m trying to reconcile what I’m seeing in the file system
for a Solr index versus what it is reporting in the UI. Here’s what I
see in the UI for the index:


As shown, the index is 74.85 GB in size. However, here is what I see in
the data folder of the file system on that server:


As shown, it is consuming 109 GB of space. Also note that one of the
index folders is 75 GB in size.

My question is why the difference, and whether I can remove some of
these index folders to reclaim file system space? Or is there a Solr
command to do it (is it as obvious as “Optimize”)?

If there a manual I should RTFM about the file structure, please point
me to it.  J
