Subject Re: Anti-compaction Diskspace issue even when latest patch applied
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 15:16:32 GMT
The patch you refer to was to help *compaction*, not *anticompaction*.

If the space is mostly hints for other machines (is that what you
meant by "due to past problems with others?") you should run nodeprobe
cleanup on it to remove data that doesn't actually belong on that
