Hi Josh, I don't have a yearly checklist. I'll check the browse entries if it seems like it's been a while or if I just did a full re-ingest. It's low priority.
Most of the cleanup these days is nightly, and it's the usual suspects, circ/holds aging, auditor data, and action trigger data are the biggies. Incidentally, the initial copy auditor and action/trigger cleanup resulted in deleting about 1/3 of the database (by disk usage). I still want to implement a form of bib record deletion that removes most of the ingested data. (I could say goodbye to 44M unused rows in metabib.real_full_rec, for example). That will require discussion, though, since not everyone will want to get rid of everything (e.g. you may want to report on deleted dibs). This has come up in IRC a few times as well. LP pending. -b On Tue, Apr 3, 2018 at 8:44 AM, Josh Stompro <stomp...@exchange.larl.org> wrote: > Thanks Bill, is there any chance you have your checklist/script for what > you cleanup shared anywhere?
