Which files grow in /root ? (OSR5.0x) - SCO

Hello, running SCO Unix OSR5.0x boxes, I'd like to know wich files I do have a look to see if size not growing too much (like /usr/adm/messages, /usr/adm/syslog, ...) ? Thank's. F. STOCK -- **************** Enlever ".remove-me" dans l'adresse. Remove ".remove-me" from e-mail. ****************...

    Hello,

    running SCO Unix OSR5.0x boxes, I'd like to know wich files I do have a
    look to see if size not growing too much (like /usr/adm/messages,
    /usr/adm/syslog, ...) ?

    Thank's.

    If you are having issues with your root filesystem running low on
    available space, try using find(C) with the -size option to find files
    larger than XXMb. (eg. 'find / -size +3000000c -print' will find
    files greater than (roughly) 3Mb)

    If you are looking for a list of files/directories that are
    continually changing in content, that would vary greatly depending on
    the applications you are using. Some of the more notorious
    space-consuming files on our systems are:

    /var/adm/syslog
    /var/adm/messages
    /var/spool/lp/logs/*
    /usr/spool/mail/*
    /tmp ----> Many applications/people use this as a dumping ground

    Other things that come to mind:
    Samba log files
    Apache log files
    Monitoring software (eg. RAID controller, UPS, etc.)

    The first place I look after /tmp, /var/tmp, and /usr/adm is the /dev
    directory. It's amazing how many times I'll find a huge file like
    /dev/rcto where somebody made a typo when attempting a backup.

    In fact, ``find /dev -type f -print'' shouldn't come up with much output
    (two or three files on a Linux system, zero on my OSR5.0.5 box).

    Get 'prune' from ftp.jpr.com, which truncates ascii files from the top,
    and should run weekly to control such files.

    My current /etc/default/prune file:

    /usr/adm/messages 500
    /usr/adm/deliver.errlog 100

    /usr/adm/sshdlog 200
    /usr/adm/syslog 800

    /usr/adm/xferlog 150
