I’m looking at shredding a ton of old data from our system and I want to
make sure I am understanding the steps involved to ensure everything is
cleaned up properly.
I have shredder setup and have shredded some tickest through the WebUI to
test things out. All is working in that aspect.
My RT instance has had a fairly long lifecycle where queues have come and
gone. I want to clean up the mess. I want to shred all the stuff that isn’t
related to anything recent.
I’m thinking I have to do the following:
- shred all the tickets that aren’t in the active queues
- shred all users that aren’t attached to anything
On the Shredder page of the Wiki it talks about running rt-validator.
Do I have to run this at all after I’ve done the shredding?
This is going to shred about 30,000 tickets, and a huge number of Users.
Does the shredding have to be done on a quiet system? I’ve shred a few
tickets while we were live without issue… I’m just worried that I kick
off a process to shred a large volume and it chokes my server out.
Any experience/input is appreciated.
