This depends on how your filesystem is mounted.

We used to directly mount /var to our non-volatile flash partitions but 
because of another feature requirement we now mount /var as an overlay 
on /tmp:

Then we have another service that periodically rsyncs the /tmp overlay 
into the non-volatile flash partition to persist the redfish logs:
