Increased /var on stone - Temporary server outage

This morning the var directory on stone filled up it's 4.5G size. While attempting to extend the logical volume, we encountered errors that caused mysql to fail to start, giving the following errors.

0 stone:/var/lib/mysql/saharadev2_drup# mysl
-bash: mysl: command not found
127 stone:/var/lib/mysql/saharadev2_drup# mysql

After failing to unmount the var volume, I rebooted stone and forced an fsck which resolved the issues. Scary half an hour, but all seems to be resolved now. The var lv is now at 7G.
