Subject Re: 5.13.3 Invisible message prevents storage garbage clean
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:13:21 GMT
The garbage collection process which determines which files can be garbage
collected is done in the MessageDatabase class that is part of KahaDB.  If
you turn on trace logging for then your log file will
spit out a ton of information about the gc process.  It will log
information about the garbage collection candidates after it checks various
things to determine if a file should be kept.  This log information should
help determine which phase of the GC checking removed those files from
being eligible from garbage collection.

If the issue is acks referencing the file then the ack compaction might
help with that.  There are a couple bugs with it in 5.13.3 (and it is off
by default) that are fixed for 5.14.0.
