Subject [jira] [Updated] (IVY-321) Advanced cache cleaning
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2017 16:21:00 GMT


Gintas Grigelionis updated IVY-321:
    Summary: Advanced cache cleaning  (was: advanced cache cleaning)

> Advanced cache cleaning
> -----------------------
>                 Key: IVY-321
>                 URL:
>             Project: Ivy
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Gilles Scokart
> Ivy should provide some solution to manage the size of the cache.  Ivy settings should
have some rules saying how long to keep versions of the jars in the cache.  Theses rules could
be parametrized in function of the module, of the type of revision, of the age of the files
or depending of the last time it has been used, the existence of dependent modules, etc. 
(I let you choose the best solutions)
> The cleaning might be performed automatically when a resolve is performed, or might be
invocable from a dedicated task.
> There is currently no easy way to perform similar cleaning.  
> To illustrate this need, here is a mail I received from a developer who is using ivy
since 1 day. He has wriiten an ant scripts launching some tests build by our continuous build.

> Gilles,
> The build file is working great, so thanks for that! It's a very easy way to distribute
software to the testers (until now I had to send all the jars and update them manually etc)
> However, one minor issue: I've noticed that ivy keeps all version in its cache. After
just a day of playing around with it I already got a cache of almost 100MB, so this will get
out of control rather quickly. Is there a configuration option somewhere to limit the cache
size? or to automatically delete older versions? Even if it just leaves the latest version
I'm ok with that, although it might be neat to leave the last 3 or 5 or something.
