RE: Areas to clear out on Redhat Server



df -h gives you a report on disk space.  How much is used, how much is
available and on which filesystem.  Did you try it?  It really is self
explanatory.

I would suspect that maybe one or more filesystems are full.  Likely /var.
The log files are usually rotated by logrotate, and only a few weeks worth
of logs are kept.  You really don't want to delete your logs.  Look around
using df -h and try to determine what is full, before deleteing anything.
Then figure out what is  very old, or not necessary.

You may want to rebuild the machine with larger partitions.

"Can someone advise me on what local  areas i can remove on a Redhat ES
Version3 Server as i am experiencing a problem when i run commands on the
machine, it is intensely slow and i wondered if one of my temp areas was
full or filling up. I found allot of data in the obvious place /var/log but
i am unsure what i can delete without having an affect on the server
itself. Any help/Advice would be much appreciated."

What does "df -h" tell you?
