Purge log files on R81.10 (VMware)

Hi, 
Want to upgrade VM to Titan and it keeps complaining about disk space when uploading the package.

when I look disk space log partition is huge.

Is there a clean and simple way to purge it all? 
I looked at some stuff and it's all diving into cli and doesn't really apply to my directory structure or doesn't work.

# df -h
Filesystem                       Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg_splat-lv_current   40G   11G   27G  28% /
/dev/sda1                        289M   27M  248M  10% /boot
tmpfs                            3.8G  6.7M  3.8G   1% /dev/shm
/dev/mapper/vg_splat-lv_log       85G   75G  5.3G  94% /var/log

I assume this is your management/log server. Go to $FWDIR/log and delete older logs you do not need. Normally, you should see rotated logs with the data stamp as part of the name.

There may not be enough free space to do a snapshot, which is required to do an in-place upgrade.
What is the size of the disk and what virtualization platform is being used?

Applying hotfixes or upgrades via CPUSE necessitates taking a snapshot of the root filesystem prior to installation.
This is a mandatory requirement to ensure you can roll back in case of issues.
Snapshots are stored in unallocated disk space, and it appears you have none (85GB + 40GB is more than 120GB).
