Hi @sokonta 

Did you already read this knowledgebasearticle about clearing disk space on the root partition: https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000ClaJCAS

 

About the /opt/panlogs you do not have to worry about. These are the actual logs (traffic, threat, url, ...) that the firewall writes to the disk. These logs will be automatically overwritten (actually this is also done on the root partition). By default the value there will not go above 95% but it depends how you allocated the diskspace for the different type of logs. Some more information about this paftition you can find here: https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000ClgZCAS
