Subject:eventum_support_email_body table is full
View as plain text  

we ran into the problem of e-mails not showing up in issues anymore this 
morning. A mysqlcheck run revealed that the eventum_support_email_body 
table had grown too big (32-bit file system):

  warning  : Datafile is almost full, 4294966888 of 4294967294 used
  status   : OK

We nuked some of the biggest entries manually but would like to do so 
regularly and in a well-defined manner from now on (we'll also move to a 
64-bit system).

I was wondering whether big attachments are too blame but it turned out 
that the eventum_issue_attachment table is "only" 2.4 GiB big while 
eventum_support_email_body has those 4 GiB.

What we considered is to shrink old entries with a <Deleted> entry. But we 
are unsure what the fields are actualy used for. What's seb_body used for? 
It's seems like looking at the e-mail in the Web frontend will query 
seb_full_email (although it will just show the body). But if we overwrite 
a seb_full_email entry Eventum won't display the placeholder. Would we 
need to fill in a fake e-mail with headers?

General question: anyone has some ready made scripts to prune old 
information? I've been ocassionally cleaning the mail_queue tables in the
