1. Check the size of /tmp.  I use 2Gib since that leaves me lots of room
for the things I do.

2. Check the normal usage of space in temp.  That is the temporary
filesystem space that everything uses.  If you have a rogue process that
leaves files there or something else using space in temp that is not
normal it should be tracked down and managed appropriately.

This type problem is why I use a separate filesystem
for /usr /var /var/log /tmp /home and /.
By having appropriately sized partitions I can be assured in most cases
that a single rogue process filling up a filesystem will not bring the
server to its knees.
