    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

    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

    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.
