I am running SLSE12 and the root partition is 95% used and I would like to increase this storage.
I noticed the filesystems devtmpfs, and three tmpfs are 943M and 949M respectively by minimally used. Are these logical filesystems within the / “root” filesystem? If this is so then can these be resized smaller? Would the / “root” automatically obtain this space or would it need to be resized larger?
Another way I was looking at this was to find the directories that were large and replace them with a LVM volume. I find /var with 285M but a bit confused with /bin at 5.0M. If I can replace /var then what would the process be to replace it?
