This is related to a UNIX system where files are stored and root system is getting full and system hung. I am trying to express that the reason for this is that root directory is "auto filling". There is some script or task that is automatically generating files to the root directory so it is getting full. It is not human intervention that is making this happen.
Could you please advise if saying "the root directory is auto filling" is the best suitable way expressing this?
I have the feeling there is a better way.
