The RavenDB in C:ProgramDataRed GateSQL Lighthouse has reached nearly 50GB. How can I purge that?


  • Hello,

    You can manually purge the data by stopping the DLM Dashboard Storage Service removing/deleting the backend RavenDB file located in that folder.

    I came here to ask this same question, and I'm frankly a little disappointed by the answer... it was my understanding that this RavenDB database holds the schema changes, which is basically what I installed the software to keep track of in the first place. The file is growing quite large to the point where we're running out of space on the drive... are you really saying that the only solution is to delete the file and lose all of my schema change history?

    Assuming I do delete this file, am I only losing my schema change data? Will I need to reconfigure anything?

    And if I don't delete it, is there some upper limit to how large this file will grow?
