Question about full /var partition.

hi, I am facing a problem about my /var partition, and hopefully someone can give me some suggestions.

After upgrading my rh 8.0 to 9, somehow my /var was filled up to 100%. I am wondering in this situation, what should I do, as I still have free space in other partitions? Should I set up a hard/soft link or I should resize my /var a bit?

Your suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Check how big /var/log is (du -h /var/log).
Log files get really big over time
