/var/run running out of space



  • Hi all

    Since a few days, I'm having a problem with my system. The disk space of /var/run is running out of space …

    2.3.1-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)
    built on Wed May 25 14:53:06 CDT 2016
    FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3

    Disk usage ( /var/run ) 108% of 3.4MiB - ufs in RAM

    [2.3.1-RELEASE][admin@---]/var/run: ls -lh

    I already rebooted the system, but without the hoping result. Before 2.3.1-RELEASE-p1 I never had this problem.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
