Examples:

sake-1# ls -la /var/crash/isi_webui_d.core.gz

-rw------- 1 root daemon 71401343 Feb 8 10:17 /var/crash/isi_webui_d.core.gz

sake-1# cd /var/log/audit

sake-1# ls -altr

total 81500

-rw------- 1 root wheel 4080811 Sep 9 16:31 smb.log.9.gz

-rw------- 1 root wheel 3619885 Sep 23 18:12 smb.log.8.gz

-rw------- 1 root wheel 3908334 Oct 9 12:49 smb.log.7.gz

-rw------- 1 root wheel 4239383 Dec 20 22:25 smb.log.3.gz

-rw------- 1 root wheel 4263717 Jan 11 11:27 smb.log.2.gz

-rw------- 1 root wheel 4210553 Jan 29 15:42 smb.log.1.gz

-rw------- 1 root wheel 4057609 Feb 13 11:21 smb.log.0.gz

drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Feb 13 11:21 .

drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 10240 Feb 26 11:02 ..

Hello Mike,

It seems smb auditing is enabled on cluster. you can move these files to /ifs/data/<dir name> else you can create soft link for  this  directory to path under /ifs so it will not fill  var partition.

for eg:

ln -s /var/log/audit  /ifs/<dir name>

How to: Linux / UNIX create soft link with ln command

Hi Mike,

The /var partition is limited to 500MB by default, you will receive the alert message when the /var partition reaches 75%, 85% or 95% of capacity. According to your requirement, I strongly suggest you refer to primus emc14000946 which provides a solution for high capacity of /var partition.
