We have plenty of space on a different mounted device. Since the /var partition stays relatively static in terms of size (around 8-10GB because of big logs that we need), I'd be fairly happy to simply make our current /var space 65% full rather than 75%. In other words, we don't need to move much. Here's a snapshot of what's in there now:
4.0K ./account 119M ./cache 0 ./clamd 292M ./cpanel 8.0K ./crash 12M ./csectsh 528M ./data 16K ./db 16K ./empty 6.1G ./lib 4.0K ./local 24K ./lock 1003M ./log 16K ./lost+found 0 ./mail 120K ./named 4.0K ./nis 4.0K ./opt 8.0K ./portsentry 20M ./pravda 4.0K ./preserve 84K ./profiles 236K ./run 115M ./spool 470M ./tmp 4.0K ./yp
We just repartitioned a bunch of stuff on our production server, so I don't really feel like scheduling more downtime, especially since I believe we have an SLA with a client. I know that many of these files' parent processes would have a problem with sym links, but I'm far from an expert, as this is an inherited system. Does anybody know any sure bets for things that can move?
