Files storage is growing

Our files storage is growing and growing. We will hit our 1TB disk limit soon.
How to prune old files?

We run

docker-compose --file ./docker-compose.yml exec worker sentry cleanup --days 90 -l INFO

regularly, but the files space does not decrease at all.

How to get rid of old files?

Thanks for any hint!

Is there some documentation that makes you think sentry cleanup operates on file storage? What happens if you do something like …

find /var/lib/docker/volumes/sentry-data/_data/files/ -mindepth 1 -mtime +90 -delete

Seems likely that there is some metadata in the database so that hard-deleting files under the hood will leave some orphan records that results in a degraded user experience. Also seems sensible that sentry cleanup would clean up file storage … :thinking:

Hi @chadwhitacre ,

we added the manual deletion to our cron job. But yes from a user point of view I would expect that with sentry cleanup everything gets cleaned up :slight_smile:

Kind regards,

The code for sentry cleanup does include a cleanup_unused_files function. Any clues in there about why this might not be doing the trick for you?
