    tdubb123 Master

      when i do vdh -h on some hosts I noticed /tmp is 100%full. any idea what is writing to it and is it safe to remove everything from /tmp?

          Please, provide us the list of files from /tmp folder... just try ls -la.

              Seems like the ql_imalog is eating all the free space and based on this another thread Re: ql_ima.log file, you will need upgrade the Qlogic driver.

                Remove those ql_ima files and update driver of qlogic card.
