I’m investigating high disk utilization for our Nexus Repository Manager (3.28.1) implementation (mostly nuget/helm/docker repos). Querying orient for repository sizes shows a massive discrepancy between reported total repo size and disk utilization.
While trying to figure out what’s using the disk, I came across the blobs/blobstore/content/tmp directory. In that dir, I found tons of tmp files (hundreds of GB) going back a long time.
I’m having a hard time finding documentation on what’s stored in that content/tmp directory and how to properly clean it up. I have scheduled cleanup/compaction tasks that seem to be working properly, but aren’t touching this area.
Can anyone provide insight regarding what’s stored in this tmp area and how it should properly be cleaned? Or maybe what cleaning task isn’t working as intended? Is it safe to simply delete older files in that dir?
