Re: postgres out of disk space

CF Runtime

Droplets are important, and should not be removed. If an app is deleted,
the droplet will also be deleted. If a droplet exists, that means it is
still needed.

If the app needs to be scaled up or moved to a different runner, the
droplet is reused. In theory droplets could be recreated from the package
if it were deleted, but there is no automated behavior for this. You would
need to `restage` the app to force the system to generate a new droplet
from the existing package.

It will be handy to have a configuration option for CC to prune unused
droplets after 7 days of inactivity, for example.

cf-release v213 fixed a bug where buildpack caches were not getting
cleaned up properly. Are you running a version prior to 213?

If so, you might need to go into the
`shared/` directory and delete the
`buildpack_cache` subdirectory. Deleting the contents of buildpack_cache
will not cause failures in the system, the caches will simply get generated
from scratch the next time apps stage.

If you upgrade to 213 or later, you can just call the api endpoint to
clean out the buildpack cache. You can find the details in the v213 release

ah, it’s not postgres:

90M postgres

it’s actually:

94G shared/

Does it keep a copy of each artifact ever pushed?

Or is this part of the event storage, controlled by these properties:


cutoff_age_in_days: 31


cutoff_age_in_days: 31

Does your database occupy this 100 GB? Or something else like logs?

And I’m worried it’ll just happen again in a few months.
