Large database - events table. How to find cause?

Hey all,

I have my “purge_keep_days” at 2. However my database is now over 11GB in size with nearly all of that in the “events” table. How can I best figure out what is flooding the database and correct it?


Are you at the latest release?
There was an issue in 0.61.1 that is fixed.

Yes, I’m on 0.62

TBH there wasn’t anything important in there anyway since I pipe everything to InfluxDB for long-term storage. I just nuked the database, we’ll see if the problem resurfaces.

Nuking the database appears to have resolved the issue. Not sure if it was residual to the bug in 0.61.1 or not but my database has been between 2 and 3 GB since last week.
