    /var file system got FULL, How to bring the % to 70% ?


    Hi,

    One of our Linux server /var filesystem reached the threshold limit and I have to bring the % to 70 to 75% . Please help me with your commands.

    /var/adm/cron and /var/adm/syslog files need to be zipped and the original file should be nullified.

    How to do this ?

    /dev/vg00/lvol8 4718592 3993552 719448 85% /var

    I need commands to do this,Please help me.

    Regards,
    Aparna.

    Take a look at logrotate and set up a cron job for it.
