Cleaning up /var/log

We recently did an inline (cpuse) upgrade on our SmartCenter Server from R80.20 to R80.30

/var/log has now a size of 712GB, and there must be plenty of unused stuff to delete. Any hints are welcome.

For example: WTF is /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80.20/fw1/log/blob/

Same question, a year later, but with R80.30.  Lots of space consumed in /fw1/log/blob/.

Hi, it seems that this directory is used to store packet captures by the Anti-Virus and Anti-Bot Blade.

From R80.20 CLI Reference Guide: Source
.......such as Anti-Bot and Anti-Virus that store packet captures in the $FWDIR/log/blob/ directory on the Security Gateway.

 

Page 174 or Ctrl+F blob

Edit: Found a relevant sk111593 

Hope this helps
