Subject Re: Some questions now that we're running Archiva 2.0.1

If I can follow up on my own question #1...  After further digging it appears that what might
be taking so long for these scans to happen, and why disk usage has increased dramatically,
is because it is populating the jcr repository for the first time.  It looks like jcr was
introduced in 1.4-M1 and we are coming from 1.3.5, so we haven't encountered it until now.
 Does it sound correct that the initial population of the jcr repository would cause long
scan times and increase overall disk usage significantly?

We have found that data/archiva/database is holding a large amount of data and none of it
has a timestamp more recent than when we shut down 1.3.5 in order to do the 2.0.1 upgrade.
 So, has data/archiva/database been replaced by data/jcr?  If so, we could delete data/archiva/database
and reclaim a significant amount of disk space.

Sorry, I hit the wrong hotkey combo and my message was sent prematurely.  Let's just start
with the two questions below, though.

Subject: Some questions now that we're running Archiva 2.0.1

Now that we have upgraded from 1.3.5 to 2.0.1, some questions have come up:

  1.  Is there a way to stop a repository scan once it has started?  It looks like a full
scan of internal started when we brought up the new version, and due to the size of our repository
(and possibly insufficient hardware), it took over 48 hours to complete.  We started a similar
scan on snapshots once internal was complete, just in case that is optimal for 2.0.1, and
it has been running for almost 72 hours.  We don't necessarily want to stop it, but it would
be good to know how in case we need to...these scans do affect overall performance.  We haven't
tried bouncing Archiva, not sure if that would stop the scan or if it would just resume upon
  2.  Is there a way to disable a proxy?  In 1.3.5 we would sometimes find that proxy repositories
would become unresponsive and time out on every request (sometimes this happens even if the
proxy if available via manual browser URL), and Archiva is effectively hung until the timeout
finally completes.  In these cases we would disable the proxy and then try turning it back
on at some later date to see if it is behaving better.  This has already happened once in
2.0.1 and since we couldn't find a way to disable it, we just deleted that proxy.
