We see a /proc directory on our server with hundreds of subdirectories and files rapidly being written (-- timestamps with the current date/time --). Is this normal?
The /proc directory is a virtual filesystem which has nothing to do with disk use. (In Linux, you don't see it in the "df -h" dislay; in Solaris, you do.) You should ignore it.
If there seem to be problems, they should be directed to your Linux/Solaris system administrator.
