I’ve got myself a little confused about my install. I’ve installed to a watchguard XTM5. I thought I had installed to a 50G harddisk but the other day while trying to install pfBlockerNG & ntopng my var partition filled up.
Here is output from df -i
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on /dev/gptid/6f435ac4-b194-11e7-836a-0010182dead2 57876188 1167784 52078312 2% 19712 7524350 0% / devfs 1 1 0 100% 0 0 100% /dev /dev/md0 78876 272 72296 0% 37 10713 0% /tmp /dev/md1 118556 20888 88184 19% 175 15695 1% /var devfs 1 1 0 100% 0 0 100% /var/dhcpd/dev
I’m not sure why my 50g drive doesn’t have a drive name and is just a gptid but I really don’t know ebnough about Freebsd to work it out.
Here is output from df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/gptid/6f435ac4-b194-11e7-836a-0010182dead2 55G 1.1G 50G 2% / devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev /dev/md0 77M 268K 71M 0% /tmp /dev/md1 116M 20M 86M 19% /var devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /var/dhcpd/dev
I can see I have the 50G available but Im assuming it isnb’t being used by the packages at all.
Can someone advise on how I can fix this? Hoping I don’t have to reinstall.
Thanks in advance.

/var is clearly a memory disk, so you most likely activated the RAM Disk Setting in System -> Advanced -> Misc. without understanding what it does.
Those devfs filesystems are virtual/pseudo filesystems for access to device nodes. They always show 100% full. You cannot write to them. Your 50GB drive is 2% full.
