Occupation 100% de l'espace /var

Hello .

I Installed my server with FAN for monitoring ( Nagios + Centreon + Nagvis ) . I have also pnp4nagios installed .

This is the description of my disk :

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                      2.9G  1.2G  1.5G  45% /
                      480M   88M  367M  20% /home
                      1.9G  148M  1.7G   9% /opt
                      3.8G  306M  3.3G   9% /tmp
                      3.8G  3.0G  622M  83% /usr
                      1.9G  821M  998M  46% /logiciel
                       23G   22G     0 100% /var
/dev/sda1             494M   21M  448M   5% /boot
tmpfs                1006M     0 1006M   0% /dev/shm
And I work on a virtual machine vmware .

I have no more access to my centreon et nagios interface ,Due to the 100% of the occupation on /var

I think it is not normal .can You help please to understand why 23 GO is all used ?

this is what is presenents on the /var repository :

var]# ls
account  backup  empty  local  lost+found  ndo          nis       racoon   spool  yp
adm      cache   games  lock   mail        ndo2db.lock  opt       rrdtool  tmp
agentx   db      lib    log    named       net-snmp     preserve  run      www
Thank you for your help

/var (especially /var/log) is where all the logfiles go.
If you don't have logrotate setup correctly, it'll fill up.
You need to archive/purge some logs and setup logrotate (see /etc/logrotate.d usually)
You might need to tune your nagios system to check less often.
