Amazon EC2 disk resize No space left on device

On an Amazon EC2 instamce disk usage was full.

I increased disk size on Amazone AWS console. But disk did not get changed in EC2 instance.

The partition still shows 10 GB. When i try growpart, i get error

This is because disk is full. I try delete some unwanted files. But was not able to free up much disk space. To fix the error, i mounted /tmp in memory with commands.

This ec2 instance had lot of free RAM, so it should handle /tmp folder with out any issue. Now growpart worked.

parted -l shows the partition using all available disk space

still df -h won’t show increased disk space, this is because you need to increase filesystem size.
