Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Once records in the history tables reach a certain (configurable) age they are removed. This cleanup activity was previously not being performed for the "host_interface_samples_history" table. This resulted in the table growing in size over time and taking up excessive amounts of disk space. The ETL process has been updated and now removes old records from the table correctly.

Description Idith Tal-Kohen 2012-09-28 11:23:25 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #856152 +++

Description of problem:
Customers contacted us about an issue where it turned out that host_interface_samples_history table occupies more than 11 GB of disk space.

This table is not cleaned up properly as supposed.
(by default 1000 lines and 30 days)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ic157 - rhevm 3.0.7

How reproducible:
100 %

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a rhev-m environment (running more than 30 days) - can be simulated

Actual results:
DB excesively grows up

Expected results:
tables should be properly cleaned up

Additional info:
Yaniv Dary already proposed workaround script (thanks Yaniv):

Create or replace FUNCTION delete_host_interface_samples() returns void
AS $procedure$
    DELETE FROM host_interface_samples_history WHERE history_id in (SELECT history_id
                                                                    FROM host_interface_samples_history
                                                                    WHERE history_datetime < CURRENT_TIMESTAMP - interval '3 days'
                                                                    LIMIT 100000);
COMMIT; $procedure$
LANGUAGE plpgsql;

Create or replace FUNCTION run_delete_host_interface_samples() returns void
AS $procedure$
    IF (SELECT history_id
        FROM host_interface_samples_history
        WHERE history_datetime < CURRENT_TIMESTAMP - interval '3 days'
        LIMIT 1) IS NULL THEN EXIT;  -- exit loop
    END IF;
    PERFORM delete_host_interface_samples();
    PERFORM pg_sleep(5);
END; $procedure$
LANGUAGE plpgsql;

SELECT run_delete_host_interface_samples();

This bug is fixed on 3.1 on BZ#783787.
I would like to request this for 3.0.z.

Current workaround provided to the customer:
Run the script from comment 1 as a cron job on a weekly basis.

On what build should I verify the BZ ?
Who in Pre-integration tested this ?

BZ was found on ic157 - rhevm 3.0.7
we dont have anything later than ic157...
