/var/opt/sfmdb/pgsql filling up /var

Hi All!

 

Is there anything that can be cleared up inside

/var/opt/sfmdb/pgsql/base

 

also

/var/jail

 as well as

/var/tmp

 I wonder if I can delete this type of files:

-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users         7195 Jun 24  2012 yhaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users          487 Jun 24  2012 xhaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users         1883 Jun 24  2012 zhaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users          254 Jun 26  2012 aiaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users         3608 Jun 26  2012 biaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users          952 Jun 26  2012 ciaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users          206 Oct 15  2012 hiaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users         3494 Oct 15  2012 iiaa01472
-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users         1400 Oct 15  2012 jiaa01472

 inside /var/tmp.

 

 I have /var at 100%

Sure, 2012 is way too old to be useful but they are small.

Have you tried using cleanup(1m) to commit superseded patches?

Re: /var/opt/sfmdb/pgsql filling up /var

I dont think I can use the cleanup command:

 

#cleanup -p -c 1
### Cleanup program started at 02/19/14  12:04:41
Preview mode enabled. No modifications will be made.
Commit patches superseded at least 1 time(s) on 'mcelrate'.
Obtaining superseded patch information...done.
No non-committed patches superseded at least 1 time(s) are present.
All information has been logged to /var/adm/cleanup.log.
### Cleanup program completed at 02/19/14  12:04:41

What directories under /var are the largest?  What's changed recently?

Search for other topics about large space on /var.

Then you have nothing to lose by committing some of these large patches.  You could take and ignite backup first.

Unfortunately cleanup doesn't have a -c0 option.  :-(

Try this on some large patches:

swmodify -x patch_commit=true patch-names ...
