Yum clean all

08 August,2011 by Tom Collins

The /var folder on a Red Hat Linux server  was reported as only 1% space  left.

The DB2 binaries and data\ log files were on their own drive space.

Normally ,  I search for the Linux largest files and assess whether they require pruning.  Occasionally I use the command :

 yum clean all

 Firstly, what is yum ?

From the yum wiki . “Yum is an automatic updater and package installer/remover for rpm systems. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages. It makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm.”

 If yum is installed , executing : yum clean all  , will remove cached packages and headers.

 In my case it cleared 1.6 GB
