My personal favorite is
# du -ax . | sort -rn | less
from the root directory of the filesystem in question. I do it so
often I made a script out of it.
This has the advantage that the -x makes it not cross filesystem mount
boundaries, so it only shows you the files that are an issue.
But I too am betting it's in /var/log. That's why I always make that
its own mount point.
