Description borgia 1998-12-18 23:20:52 UTC
a postgres-vacuum script in /etc/cron.weekly is recommended:

-cut-
#!/bin/bash

su postgres -c "for database in /var/lib/pgsql/base/* ; do
psql -c "vacuum" -d \${database##/var/lib/pgsql/base/} -q ;
done"
exit 0
-cut-

[!!!reported for RH 5.0!!!]

This is a suggestion for a product improvement.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1998-12-30 04:07:59 UTC
Doing a vacuum on the databases is a action that only the DBA
administrator should decide on. We can not set things to arbitrarily
clean the transaction logs from the database. Due to the high risk of
destroying extremely valuable data, we will not change.
