Leftover Checksum Files


#1

I have noticed that my checksums directory for chef-server has been growing
while I have not been adding more cookbooks (just re-uploading for testing).
Because of the way that I have to write my cookbooks the checksum directory
became so large it ran out of disk space.

I wrote this script[1] that seems to get rid of the unnecessary checksums. I
was curious if anyone else had run into this problem or could it possibly be a
bug?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga)
Chef Server (API) Version: 0.10.10

Though I don’t remember upgrading, we used to be on 0.10.4 but I am still
seeing the issue now.
