/var/log getting full

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I just logged into my server and i saw this error under the Fix Common Problems plugin:

Error: /var/log is getting full (currently 86 % used). Ive had my server up for about 2 weeks before i saw this error. I saw that a restart might fix this but I don't want to have to restart every couple of weeks, I would like to get to the bottom of this. I tried looking through the logs in the diagnostics but Im not sure where to look or what Im looking for. Can someone help me with this? I'm attaching the diagnostics file.

Looks like you have installed everything from NerdPack. Do you really need all that? Do you even know what most of it is? I recommend only installing those things you use regularly.


atop is one of those, and it is notorious for using log space. After you get rid of all that you will have to reboot to get that space back.
