Purge deduplication data

Hi all,

I am in the process of deploying Arcserve UDP on my network.

I have installed the agents to all nodes and setup a RPS with deduplication. 

I ran some temporary plans for testing and filled my 10TB of storage. I have gone into the RPS server and removed all the recovery points to free the disk space again but the disk is still showing as full.

It appears the deduplication data is still present. Is there any way of purging this so I can carry on my testing?

Cheers,

James

Please ignore, the issue resolved it self over night.

The disk space has now freed it self up.

Hi,

I have the same issue. I just removed some recovery points but the data is still on the disk.

Maybe tonight it will schedule some kind of purge and will remove the files.

Is there a way to force this process?

Thank you,

Sergio

I couldn't find a way to force it.

When I came into the office the next day the data had been purged over night.

Well,

when deleting RecoveryPoints from RPS Dedup Datastore it simply takes time.

The amount of time is depending of

  • The numbe rof machines being backed up to the datastore
  • Theirs change rate
  • The overall dedup/compression ratio inside of this datastore
  • The utilization of the underlying storage system
  • The grade of fragementation of NTFS
  • Whether or not ASBU LiteIntergation jobs are still in process of execution and maybe being locking the RPs
  • Also, internal background cleanups may have an influence.
    For deeper insight , adress a technical request or wait some weeks for next release.

Hth,

georg
