I'm working with a Gatein 3.1.0-GA instance with Mysql 5.5 and I'm experiencing an issue where everytime a user logs into the application data gets inserted into the JCR_SITEM and JCR_SVALUE tables. I've noticed that when Gatein starts up with a fresh database it creates these tables and populates them with about 10,000 rows each. These rows appear to be storing some of the portal preferences/properties. Every time a unique user logs into the system there are about 200 rows being inserted into both the JCR_SITEM and JCR_SVALUE tables. I don't know what these are being used for or why they are being stored but it has cuased a space issue on my production server as it has collected over 20 gigs (yes gigabytes) worth of data.
I can solve the problem by:
1. Dropping the database and re-creating it, but this causes downtime in my site.
2. Deleting the inserted users by setting up a cron job or something similar.
Ideally though I'd like to not populate this information at all. Does anyone know how I can prevent this data from entering the database?
Thanks in advance!
It would be interesting to know what data is really created. Install the CRaSH shell and use it to find out where those 20 gigs are created then tell us, so we can have a look and understand.
