Cisco Call Manager Publisher web interface and services

we have an older Linux call manager that is slated for replacement, but currently the publisher is every few days stopping the directory lookup, web administration, and various services. I am able to reboot the device via SSH, and all is well again for a couple of days. then in approx. 2 days, the web interface stops and a day later the directory lookups on the phones stop. looks like the existing common and swap directories are at over 90% full and the processes and threads are too high. Disable the SFTP backup?
