Subject Re: How to free up space on disc after removing entries from IgniteCache with enabled PDS?
Date Wed, 09 Jan 2019 07:48:52 GMT
Yes, it's about Page Memory defragmentation.

Pages in partitions files are stored sequentially, possible, it makes
sense to defragment pages first to avoid interpages gaps since we use
pages offset to manage them.

I filled an issue [1], I hope we will be able to find resources to
solve the issue before 2.8 release.
