Root partition is filling up - please check. Current usage: 85%

Version 9.711005

Recurring emails about /dev/sda6 utilization. Note 4.1G in /var/storage/chroot-http/var/run/nav1 

There are no updates to be applied. All but 2 backups have been deleted. 

du -shx * in / shows 3.1G in var

du -shx * in /var shows 2.2G in pattern

I have read every article that I could find about this issue and haven't been able to resolve the issue.

I need to get /dev/sda6 below 85% utilization.

Any ideas?

  • If I rebuild, would a weekly config backup get me back to 100%? Never done a backup restore.

    Can I just LiveCD (gparted) and expand the partition?

  • You can generate config backups at will.  I would get a new one off the UTM as well as a couple other recent ones just to be safe.  Put the one, most-recent backup on a USB memory stick, insert it and power the UTM up.

    The only things you lose with a re-image and restore is the logs and reporting.  If those are important to you, you can copy them off and back on with WinSCP.
