[@4.54 ~]# df -k /var
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
4062912 3424616 428584 89% /var
[@4.54 ~]# du -sh /var
120M /var
[@4.54 ~]# lsof /var
[@4.54 ~]#

but after remount /var
the result of df -k /var is almost as same as du

This problem has been solved
I just execute "/etc/rc.d/init.d/psacct start" once
then "df -h"
the result is as same as du
