Thank you all for your answers. Turns out that a Java process was using all
of the space. I restarted it and the problem was solved.
Thank you all for helping me to resolv this, also by giving me very useful
commands that I will use in the future.

I would speculate that some process has unlinked a file but still has it
open so the space is still in use. Try
procstat -af | grep /var
and look especially for lines that have a huge number in the OFFSET
column (although I'm not sure that's definitive -- the file descriptor
could be positioned at an offset less than the file size).
