Dear All,

let us assume ,right now my repository(crx-quickstart/repository) size is 4 GB.

i have uploaded a 30GB package to crx/packMgr,now my repository(crx-quickstart/repository) size is 34 GB.

then I have installed the uploaded package,now my repository( crx-quickstart/repository) size is 64 GB.

then I have deleted the uploaded package ,now my repository(crx-quickstart/repository) size is 94 GB.

could any tell me why is it happening like this ?

Thanks & Regards,

VeeraReddy.

Hi,

from 4 > 34G: should be clear, the package is added to the repository

from 34 > 64G: the content within the package is extracted to the repository.

from 64 > 94G: not sure, mabye  a snapshot has been created for it.

2 things as advice:

  • When you work with such large packages, always install them without creating a snapshot.
  • after such operations run a datastore GC to reclaim the storage.

When you install a package through the package manager UI, there is an "advanced" option, where you can select that no snapshots are created.
