Re: Purge files on NFS or S3?

Make sure you only delete the resource files, not everything...

An option could be to just delete all the resource files on the blobstore. The effect would be that for binaries that would have been matched, they would be uploaded again on the first new push including those binaries.

Hi all

Thanks. No I was just curious if there was a way to identify what to remove in the blobstore because I was surprised the size of my blobstore at this point. I will check what's in there (maybe James is right it is mostly resource files). I am currently using NFS. I can build a CF with S3 as my blobstore.

Not sure if this is what you need, but you can manually sync + delete files from a local filesystem (including NFS mount) to/from S3:

... with `—delete-removed` option

john, i think the resource files may grow forever right now without intervention.

i'm pretty confident that when apps are deleted that their droplets are deleted with them and that proper garbage collection occurs with that.

i'm unaware of any NFS file system to s3 blob migration. you would need to update the CC_DB references too i'm pretty sure. i'm interested if you find out more.

I just looked at our disk usage on NFS server. We have used like 200G so far, and I wonder if there's a systematic way to purge files we don't need (or how do I know I don't need them)?

Similarly, if I were to replace NFS server with S3 instead, does the existing process (if any) work with S3?
