The OverOps backend by default cleans up snapshots referenced in storage and database every 90 days. The backend cleans up the section where all the graphs are saved (24 hr, 7 days, etc.). This job is cleaned up every day at 3:30 am server time.
Sometimes, users may be looking to remove some data before the 90-day threshold (i.e. size of storage location is growing too large).
There is a script users can use to perform a clean-up job and it is accessible/executable from the OverOps backend via the command line.
Access the takipi-server/bin directory. There will be a takipi-cleanup script file available (takipi-cleanup.sh).
Here’s is the command that can assist along with parameters that can be used with this cleanup:
cleanup storage configurations: -h --help Print this usage --days Data files without modification in the past days (default: 90) --logs-days Logs files without modification in the past days (default: 90)
For example, users can perform
./takipi-cleanup --days 30 as this will perform a clean-up job of data files that are older than 30 days.
