Version Control with Subversion - svnadmin list-unused-dblogs

Name

svnadmin list-unused-dblogs — Ask Berkeley DB which log files can be safely deleted (applies only to repositories using the bdb backend).

Synopsis

svnadmin list-unused-dblogs REPOS_PATH

Description

Berkeley DB creates logs of all changes to the repository, which allow it to recover in the face of catastrophe. Unless you enable DB_LOG_AUTOREMOVE, the log files accumulate, although most are no longer used and can be deleted to reclaim disk space. See the section called “Managing Disk Space” for more information.

Examples

Remove all unused log files from a repository:

$ svnadmin list-unused-dblogs /path/to/repos
/path/to/repos/log.0000000031
/path/to/repos/log.0000000032
/path/to/repos/log.0000000033

$ svnadmin list-unused-dblogs /path/to/repos | xargs rm
## disk space reclaimed!
