Hello,


I inherited a freebsd installation with a var slice/mount that is to  
small and filling up all the time.

What type of info should I provide to allow someone to help me with a  
solution?

I would very much prefer to not install another drive just for /var.

/usr has plenty of space. Can I mount var off of /usr?

Here is the output of df for starters:

/dev/ad0s1a    128990  119970    -1298   101%    /
/dev/ad0s1f    257998  185246    52114    78%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s1g 112755734 4533434 99201842     4%    /usr
/dev/ad0s1e    257998  206956    30404    87%    /var
procfs              4       4        0   100%    /proc


and ls -la at / looks like this:
