Hi,

I got this message:

Drive Critical: /dev/sda6 (/var) is 93% full

What I've done so far:

df -h
Code:
# df -h

As you can see is not a logrotate problem and mysql is mounted on /dev/sdb3 (/backup)...

du -csh
Code:
# du -csh

2.1G    total
Can you help me please?

Thanks in advanced.

How big is your mail queue?
Maybe try flushing your mail queue. That should free some space.
You can also try removing the .rpm packages from yum cache folder.
