You can also use "SAM" for HPUX 11.11

SAM->Routine Tasks->System Log Files->Select Logs->Actions-Trim -To the Recommended Size

Re: /var housekeeping

Hi,
You can use the below command.
# swa clean {usercache | swcache | all}
When the swa command runs, it produces cache files for its use. Run swa clean to free up disk
space after your swa session is complete.

Please find the below link to clarrify more.

Re: /var housekeeping

Hi

better what u do is stop the auditing logs if not necessary if ur system is trusted.

vi /etc/rc.config.d/auditing

set the value to zero

or

u have to trim

for example

check with du -sk* and most probably u will have lot more in mail.

cd /var/mail
ll
oracle
root
#> oracle
#> root
which sets to zero

Re: /var housekeeping

don just remove anything from /var/adm/sw

use take backup of ur server make sure /var/adm/sw is backed up, its necessary if later you need to remove sm patch (it smtimes kills).

then..
#cleanup -c 2 (would remove patch superceded twice)
if you need more space
#cleanup -c 1 (would remove patch superceded once)
