CA Tech Tip: ABA Server Database disk space management

The ABA server has a backend PostgreSQL database which grows in size over time. However, you can use the following utility to prune the database of data older than 10 days:


Linux: <Analysis_server_home>/ctl/admin/


Windows: <Analysis_server_home>\ctl\admin\prune_db.bat


To prevent excessive disk space usage and maintain good performance it is strongly recommended that this utility be scheduled to run nightly using Linux cron or Windows Task Manager as appropriate. To do this, use the account that installed the ABA software.
