I got my root partition full with no obvious reason. I have access to machine. I can reboot. This is VM on VMware. kernel 4.15.0-88-generic, Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

df -h | grep /dev/sda2
/dev/sda2       137G  137G     0 100% /

du -chax --max-depth=1 /
96K     /root
44K     /tmp
268K    /home
16K     /lost+found
0       /vmlinuz
2.7G    /var
0       /initrd.img.old
4.0K    /srv
4.0K    /lib64
5.7M    /etc
75M     /boot
4.0K    /mnt
16K     /snap
4.0K    /media
15M     /bin
718M    /usr
0       /initrd.img
612M    /lib
16M     /sbin
0       /vmlinuz.old
4.0K    /opt
4.1G    /

I moved root disk between storage -> no change.
