What was the content - i doubt this is a rpm. Would be important which process(es) created and wrote to the file.

 First of all, we need to discover which files in the /var/log partition is taking up a large amount of space.

 this command can be used to check which files or directories are consuming the highest space
# du -h --max-depth=1 /var/log | sort -n -r

In the above , the /var/log/ is taken as an example

Furthermore, you can refine the search by specifying a sub-directory of the /var/log path:
# du -h --max-depth=1 /var/log/CPbackup | sort -n -r

Here's another tip for discovering large files:

find /var/log/ -type f -size +250M -exec ls -lh {} \;

That command will find files above 250MB, however, you can easily modify it to find files of a smaller size.

However, if logs are taking up a lot of space, the old ones could be migrated to another machine.

For information on migrating log files, refer to sk92440 - Move log files off Security Management Server for viewing at a later time

In the case you would need to store those log files in a compressed format, you can use the previous sk (sk92440) with the tar command:

# tar cvf

For example:
# tar czvf logfile 2017-05-29* (a day)
# tar czvf logfile 2017-05* (a month)
# tar czvf logfile *.log (all logs)

Should you be unsure about deleting any specific files in /var/log, please open a TAC ticket

However, we suspect that you probably have large files in the following directories (which can be safely migrated or moved):



Please open a TAC ticket to check further 


Thank you so much, Albrecht & Amogha,

I will open a TAC Case.
