space : df –h (more then 85% utilization)


I have executed the "df -h" command to identify the space utilization and I noticed that i have utilized more than 85% of the allotted resources.

How do I clean the “archivelogs”?

Archive log files are generally stored in /var/log and get rotated out (i.e. it might save 5 copies, then it deletes the oldest one and writes a new one). So generally they don't take up much room since they're just plain text files.

Do you know what is taking up the space? Have tried using du to find the largest directories?
