Into a machine no more visible via Web but with VM active.
If I enter via ssh and for example give into /etc/pve ls -al session is freezed.
I vould like to do df- h but also freez.
I cannot verify if real or virtual disk are full what can I do?
I would like to try to remove old logs but filsystem is readonly.
What can I do?
You can try to boot to single user mode, here is a sample discussion: https://serverfault.com/questions/482079/debian-boot-to-single-user-mode
Note, that not all steps are applicable in your situation, but it should put you on the right track.

The other option is to boot from Live ISO/USB and then mount/manipulate the root filesystem.

good luck

It may also be that with a reboot the system will restart.
Certainly if I don't find other solutions I will be forced to do as you say to copy out the virtual machines and reactivate the system.

Thank's a lot
