var files ystsme full, unbale to stop diagnostic

Hi All,

Suddenly my var file system is getting full 100%. When i checked the var, stm logs are created more and disk reached full.

i had already moved the log files, but when i try to stop the stm. it is given error as unable to excutive the permission.

/sbin/init.d/diagnostic stop

Hi..,
Please dont worry.
there are many ways that you can reduce the /var.

please use
cleanup -p -c 1 then
cleanup -c 1

what it will do that the patches that has been superseed at least once will be cleaned up from the sw.. which resides in side the /var/opt/sw.
then as a result the /var file system will be recuced by some extend..
another way also there... the syslog.log file may be occupying a big space.. so we need to trim the syslog file..

As you told that u had already moved the log file.. then please do a bdf
and check the status of /var file system.

But you are saying the stm issue is there...
so please refer to

Hi,

did you check what the big files under /var use this command.
#find /var -size +100000 -exec ls -lrt {} \;

please let me know the output.
