So, you wil start to experience issues (possibly) because you are
running out of space in /var where logs and other bits are kept.
clean up 'old files'
depending on what you do w/ logs, remove or move them to a different
partition. I typically remove all logs w/ number greater than 2.
du -h /var
to see where the space is being used and clean up
On a different partition, where there is space (external disk whatever) as root
mv archives old-archives
ln -s /full/path/to/new/archives .
df -h .
(should see the space)
