NSX Edge deploy fails because of no free space left but ..


While deploying NSX edge it fails and when I look into logs I see this

A general system error occurred: Failed to write header to "/var/log/vmware/journal/1537098786.10: Error while writing to file. There is no space left on the device

Server: VCSA

ESXI servers have enough free space and also there is plenty disk free space on my vcenter applance

Oh my mistake

/var folder is full in one of hosts

but log is only taking up about 30% of space there

remaining is taken by lib folder

Can I find some unused files and delete them?

Or It's better to increase /var size if possible

This is the first time I see /var folder full in a host !
