I just rebuild ossec using the mock tool on Centos 6.4 and my /var space rack up almost by 900m is this normal ?
You said you used
mock. This tool builds packages in a clean chroot environment, but it also keeps a cache of the minimal environment for use in building the next package.
If you don’t intend to build any other packages ever again, then you can clean out all of the data that
mock keeps around:
mock -r epel-6-x86_64 --scrub=all
