    Hi,
    identify the largest directory in /usr ( probably your Oracle-dir? )
    then create a new FileSystem, and mount it under this directory.

    Before you should tar the whole directory and delete the contents of it;

    After mounting extract the tar-archive to this directory
    and put an new entry in /etc/fstab, so when the system reboots the Filesystem is mounted automatically.

    Move the files

    Hi

    Simple move some of your data files to the other file system.

    1. Offline the data files..
    2. copy the orginal data file to the other file system
    3. run the copy command in the database
    4. media recovery if required
    5. make the data file online.

    What is making it full? If it is Oracle datafiles, then as Thomas sugested move some of them to other volume.
