Clearing The Traffic Database

L3 Networker

With the finite ammount of disk space, etc on a VM, how do you go about clearing the database of data that you no longer need? 


L7 Applicator

If you are talking about the traffic data imported via CSV that is stored under the PATH you defined for TEMPORARY DATA STRUCTURE FOLDER, and you can remove it from the same place you set it up.  Let us know if you ask for other kind of data...

Nope, talking about the data stored in the SQL/MariaDB database. Or basically, anything that long term is stored and can take up disk space.

all the data related to configs is stored in /home/userSpace 

Each project has its own database and stored in /var/lib/mysql by default. Try to keep the number of projects the lower you can

You can clean the /var/log/ folder like in any other linux distribution there are stored the mysql , apache2 and system logs and its a good practice to clean them from time to time


Hope that helps
