    Hello,


    I have received the following warning from my cPanel server.
    Code:
    ===================
    Disk usage warning
    The filesystem “/var/tmp” mounted at “/var/tmp” reached “warn” status because you currently use 84.21% of its available blocks.
    
    Notification Type: warn ⚠
    Server: hostname.net
    Primary IP Address: xx.xx.xx.xx
    Filesystem: /var/tmp
    Mount Point: /var/tmp
    Percent Used:
    84.21%
    Disk Block Usage:
    Used: 3.12 GB
    Available: 636.36 MB
    Total: 3.94 GB
    ChkServd Version: 17.0
    
    
    And checking the /tmp directory I can see the folder is filled with session files.

    it's php any site running php will add sess files to your tmp


    note: session files are usually very small your examples the largest file is 4k are you sure that they are taking 100% of your space and not something else
