OS partitions are getting almost 100%

Hello,

 

My hp-ux node is getting almost 100% full on /, /opt, /usr.  Previous admin did a default installation and now things are getting scary. Please help which log file should be trmmed. Will the > file-name method to trim the big files harm the system? I have huge files in syslog and mail directories. Please also mention other possible files to trim.

Thanks..

Probably not.  Do you need to back them up?

 

Is /var getting full too?

Have you run cleanup(1m) for superseded patches that are in /var/adm/sw/?
