I have also heard that lsof can be of help, not sure though. You can use LSOF (ftp://ftp.cerias.purdue.edu/pub/tools/unix/sysutil s/lsof) to find which processes are holding open a particular file.
Hi, I am facing this problem like, df -k is showing 92% of space filled up.

Processes holding files open is one reason why the newsyslog(8) command sends signals to syslogd or other logging programs to inform them they should close and re-open their log files after it has rotated them.
Softupdates can also effect filesystem freespace as the actual inode space recovery can be deferred; the sync(8) command can be used to encourage this to happen sooner.

An easy way to observe this is to do the following Until the background process is terminated the file space used by /tmp/cat-test will remain allocated and unavailable as reported by df(1) but the du(1) command will not be able to account for it as it no longer has a filename.
