I have a chef server that has been running for about three weeks. Initially the backups were around 15MB - 25MB. However, about a week ago, the backups started doubling in size. to the point that I’m now seeing backups in the 1.2GB range. The server is still in testing and has at most 5 clients at any given time - so the massive growth is unexpected. This is the first chef server out of many that I’ve ever seen this behavior on.
Doing some digging it appears to be growth in the postrgres database. I’ve looked for options to prune or cleanup DB but cannot seem to find any. Not sure if it’s any help, but this is the path that seems to be consuming the most space:
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
