You can simply free disk space by compressing older log files via gzip filename*

That way you don't have to delete them if you don't want. Additionally you might want to check this thread to remove temporary files.

Is this a Gateway or a Management server? What version?

If it is a Management server, do you have a script or anything in place to clean up / age out old log files?

Take a look in $FWDIR/log and see if you have an excessive amount of log files being stashed away
