Re: [linux-lvm] cleaning archive directory



Hi,

Thanks for the answer.

Then I think the clean up is broken in RHEL4.

I have filed a bugzilla for it if someone wants to fix it some day.

Is the directory /etc/lvm/archive supposed to be cleaned up manually or should it be done by some tool?

I find parameters like 'retain_min' and 'retain_days' in the file /etc/lvm.conf, which I thought was indicating some kind of automatic cleaning tool or process.


They should normally get cleaned up automatically.

The parameters apply to each VG separately, and the checks are made
whenever a new archive file is written for that VG.
(So backups of old VGs won't be deleted.)

Default keeps backups for at least 30 days and won't delete any unless that leaves at least 10 backups of that VG.
