SFMDB is consuming more disk space.

Guys,

 

Would like to know is there a way we can rotate the below contents which is using by sfm?

 

#du -sk *

#cd base

Under this directory there are plenty of files which almost all in data format.  I wonder what these data really contains...Can someone help me understand about these files  and the possible way to get rid to get back the space??

Re: SFMDB is consuming more disk space.

What is the path to the directory?  What HP-UX version?

Path =  /var/opt/sfmdb/pgsql/base  & OS version is HPUX B.11.23.

Anything written to /var/opt/sfmdb/pgsql /sfmdb.log   ?

 

There are some articles in the knowledge base that indicate if sfmdb doesn't start correctly it can grow fast...
