Hi Folks,

Please see the below questions from Layla regarding disk-space usage.

Any thoughts on this subject?

 Hi Gunnar,

Thanks for offering help!

I ran a few tests this morning regarding the disk space consumption of
Trafodion. My results are rather surprising:

Used disk space grows whenever I create a table (as expected)

Used disk space (usually) grows whenever I insert new data sets (stumbling:
in one occurrence, the used disk space actually got less)

Used disk space grows whenever I delete data sets (unlike I expected, but
this is ok, as HBase just outdates the datasets instead of truly deleting

(It even grows when I now run a major compaction using the HBase Shell)

Used disk space grows even further, if I now drop this table (this is
surprising to me, as HBase should be able to delete all HFiles related to
this table)

This really becomes troubling, as my disk was 100% full twice (causing
trouble …). Obviously, not even a garbage collection process running later
is able to permanently delete this from disk.

A colleague of mine here in the EPC suggested that it could be disk space
allocated to Trafodion but not really used. I searched the Trafodion SQL
Reference Handbook, but didn’t find a query to return the disk space
comsumption of the Trafodion data. My colleague Rebecca suggested something
similar to



(I’ve checked the disk space consumption using the df . command in the
Linux shell)

Thank you very much in advance
