directory /var/tmp in filesystem /var keeps increasing to full level in AIX
Posted on 2010-11-20
our filesystem is /var is continuously increasing every minute, upon further investigation, i found out that, it is tmp folder within /var that is continuously increasing.
can anyone tell me the significance of /var/tmp , and why could it be constantly increasing and how to go about dealing with this? is /var corrupted or something.
/var/tmp owner is bin
and owner of the files within /var/tmp is root.
in the past 4 hours i have added 2.5GB of space to /var , due to /var/tmp reaching near 100% full level.
