Most of us are using aws instances to run models for large datasets. Sometimes, there is a possibility that the initial disk that you allocated doesn’t have the required space to load the dataset. In this case, you can go to aws console and increase the size of the disk.
Following are the steps to be followed:
- This link is available on the instance summary page. You need to scroll down in instance description tab and click on the disk who size you want to increase which is more likely going to be /dev/sda1.
- Click on the volume id which has been underlined. In this case, it is vol- 05e7db6b077d36f63.
- Click on Actions -> Modify Volume
Change the size as required and click on modify. You will get a confirmation at this point. You can verify this after a few minutes on your machine by running
At this time only the disk size has been increased but the changes have not been detected by the underlying file system. You need to follow the steps from http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/recognize-expanded-volume-linux.html till the 4th step so that your filesystem recognizes the new changes.
