df -i # On some types of filesystems, this will display the inodes used per filesystem. Useful for determining how long it takes to backup or search the fs. In rare cases you might even run out of inodes if you have lots of little files.

@climagic Also, in some filesystems, eg. ext4, it's impossible to change the ratio of inodes to blocks.

You have 90% of space free, but ran out of inodes?
Well, tough luck. You should've thought this fs will have a lot of small files when you ran mkfs initially. Now it's too late - either delete the files, or grow the entire filesystem.
