Disk usage steadily increases and high CPU usage


I integrated a few custom feeds into MineMeld that have a high number of indicators. The dashboard shows 202.4K, across 21 miners. I noticed two things that I'm hoping I can work around:

  1. Disk usage is steadily increasing in the /opt/minemeld/local/data directory. Some of the feed directories are over 2GB and increasing. When I left the office on Friday that directory was at about 6GB after running for a few days, and today it is at 12GB. A restart of the MineMeld service clears them out. Is this expected? Is there a way to mitigate the slow creep or a set of files I can manually remove with a cron job? I can see us not restarting the service for several weeks and the drive filling up.
  2. Also I believe because of those large feeds, the 2 CPU cores are pegged at 100% about 75% of the time. Looking through the MineMeld engine log, I'm guessing that's because every feed is polled every 1 minute for changes automatically. Do you have any recommendations for decreasing overall CPU usage? Perhaps a way to change the polling interval? We also might throw more cores at it.

Thanks for the great tool! We're excited about using it.

Hi Dan,

those figures are in seconds. I would increase the interval to something high, like 43200. Are you sending an hup to the node in your scripts to force the reload of the list ?
