Check for symlinks into tmp such as /var/tmp -> /tmp

Often logfiles will fill /tmp

Hi,

I'm running freeradius on FreeBSD 5.3 I noticed a problem in my radius logs a little while ago. In my messages log I saw the following:

Dec 28 03:11:42 radius kernel: pid 53251 (cp), uid 0 inumber 8 on /tmp: filesystem full Dec 28 03:11:55 radius kernel: pid 52711 (perl), uid 0 inumber 7 on /tmp: filesystem full

I rebooted the system and it seems to be OK now. I am comcerned though because I don't really know what might cause /tmp to fill up and what I might do to prevent that. I don't know what df showed before the reboot, but the /tmp file system is fine now:

Filesystem  1K-blocks    Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a    253678  124276   109108    53%    /
devfs               1       1        0   100%    /dev
/dev/ad0s1e    253678      22   233362     0%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s1f  36493196 2114040 31459702     6%    /usr
/dev/ad0s1d    396526   47528   317276    13%    /var
devfs               1       1        0   100%    /var/named/dev

I realise this might be a pretty vague question, but what might cause /tmp to get full? This server is used for radius authentication, email for a few (~ 50) users and it runs bind as a slave DNS server.

Thanks for any input.
