Client delete consumes disk space

Hello all,

I run client delete in SCC5 on our test system and the CLIENTDELETE job is running for 3 days now (the test server is quite slow). The deleted client was about 200 GB big.

What suprised me is that during the delete proces the free space on the filesystem is decreasing substantially. It has consumed more than 150 GB until now and I'm getting into troubles with low disk space. I've done the client refresh (client delete and import) on our test system several times but I've never noticed such extensive free space loss.

Is it common during the client delete? How to regain the lost free space?

Or how to find what is causing the disk space loss? We're on Red Hat Linux..

Thank you,

Ondrej

    May be your DB archive log Dir. is getting filled, in case you have not changed it to noarchivelog mode (in case your DB is oracle) or simple mode (for mssql).

    Otherwise I can't see any reason Client deletion consuming available free disk space..

    I found client deletion at OS level much faster than doing with SCC5.

      The disk is almost full. It seems I'll have to temporarily move some of those archlog files to another machine. Then do DB reorg, move them back, do a full offline DB backup and then delete them. Hopefully it will work and Oracle won't end with error during the DB reorg because of missing archlog files.

      It is test/devel system. Unfortunatelly we have non-standard solution: in this one system we have the test client and also devel client. Therefore some caution has to be there...

    Dear All,

    Consider to use hints from the following OSS notes to speed-up standard client copy procedure:

    67205 - CC-INFO: Copying large and productive clients

    446485 - CC-ADMIN: Special copying options

    489690 - CC INFO: Copying large production clients
