    Hi,

    i found my /usr dir is 91% used, i found under (/usr/local/cpanel/install) many files named core.xxxx where xxxx random numbers and the size of each file around 85MB, i moved the file to another location, but i found another dir under (/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives) used around 2GB, and i think this dir will grow up and the recommendation of cPanel installation is to use small size for /usr , so what can i do with this dir , can i delete these archives or there is another solution.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi;

    core.xxxx files are generated when any process crashes or get terminated abnormally then kernel dumps the data residing in the memory at that time in to a core file so that it can be debugged later to find the cause of abnormal termination. The detailed and well explained description can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_dump.

    To make space in the /usr directory you can delete the old logs and clear the current logs from /usr/local/apache/logs and /usr/local/cpanel/logs.
