Contact Recorder database vacuum.

Contact Recorder database vacuum.

Contact Recorder database vacuum.

Afternoon Everyone. I have a contact recorder that hasn't been rebooted in 679 days and i will need to reboot it to perform a database vacuum but it may take a while for this process to finish and I am wondering if anyone might have an estimate on how long it will take? SVR edition running 10.0. 600GB SAS with 511GB free on the recorder. Thanks!

RE: Contact Recorder database vacuum.

There should be no need to full reboot the server
shut down the Contact Recorder in web administration if you do need to stop it to perform the process
(not sure exactly what is involved because I ave never actually done this )

Actually don't bother I found this on another forum.


Contact Recorder does not actually support the DB vacuum feature (at least not yet anyway).
Although there is no way to suppress this alert the good news is that there is no technical impact to the product features and performance.

Do things on the cheap & it will cost you dear

RE: Contact Recorder database vacuum.

This is the alarms I'm getting. I've never done this before either and the documentation is pretty poor...

03/14/18 01:00:39 AM It is now 681 days since the last full database vacuum. The recorder will perform a full vacuum the next time it is restarted. This may take some time. To postpone this to the following reboot, clear the setting on the System Settings > Server page. You MUST restart the recorder and allow it to vacuum the database at least once every 240 days.
