[Solved] Find where inodes are being used

phemmer Asks: Find where inodes are being used
So I received a warning from our monitoring system on one of our boxes that the number of free inodes on a filesystem was getting low.

df -i output shows this:

Filesystem       Inodes  IUsed    IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1       524288 422613   101675   81% /

As you can see, the root partition has 81% of its inodes used.
I suspect they’re all being used in a single directory. But how can I find where that is at?
