Re: file system utilization

HI Abdul,
By using below command, you can calculate how much space you can free.

cleanup -p -c1 > cleanup_patch

Work is life, you know, and without it, there's nothing but fear and insecurity.

Hi Abdul,

These are roll back copies of currently applied patches. The superseded patch files will be saved in this directory. If you remove phxxxx, you will not be able to uninstall the superseding patch of phxxxx from the system.

You will get idea from the below thread.

Re: file system utilization

# cleanup -c2

(try to house keep system log files)

# /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log*

# cd /var/mail -> you can deleted (root, emails)

Look for large files under (/var)

# find /var -xdev -type f -size +5000000c -exec ll {} \; | sort -nk 5


# du -ak /var | sort -nr | more

Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: file system utilization

Normally you do not need to rollback patches if ur system is running fine.

SO take the backup of /var file system and run
#cleanup -c 1 >>>>>> would remove patched which are superceded once

this would remove all superceeded patch and would free up a good space.

cleanup -c 2 >>> would remove patched which are superceded twice
