Dear All,
My firewall server was running out of space on / partition I

First of all, try to track down where all the space has gone, by
using `df' and `du' with the -x option.  For example, you can get
a good idea of which places in your root filesystem are the top-10
users of space with:

    # cd /
    # du -xm . | sort -nr | head -10

If this doesn't show up a lot of stuff, then there's probably a
rogue process which has opened a file and then removed it, so
it's not directly visible by traversing the tree with `du', but
you can still look for it with:

    # fstat -f / | sort -k +8

After you get this sort of information, we can make more informed
suggestions about the best way to move forward :)

I have been trying to track down a similar problem! Using the above method I think I have found 'natd' to be the culprit. Should 'natd' receive a signal when 'alias.log' rolls over? Restarting 'natd' seems to have releases some megabytes.
