This is a production Mail / DNS server (using qmail and djbdns), so I have logs in /etc (by the default run script) minimally at 100K each x10 (before they rotate out) for each of SMTP, SEND, another SMTP, axfrdns, tinydns, dnscache, 2 rbls, and maybe one more... the SMTP and SEND logs are at 250k each of 10... so you see how this can add up... I am hoping that I will have seen just about the end of the bloating / dir, but was concerned enough to write about it... I should have planned the layout better. >> It seems that on a remote box FBSD 4.8, my /dev/ad0s1a or / dir is at 73% >> capacity >> already, and this has me somewhat worried.
