This document discusses the configuration and execution of recycling for a disk archive volume in an Oracle HSM (SAM-QFS) environment.
Steps to Follow
As files containing archive copies are modified or deleted in a SAM file system and new archive copies are created, their old archive copies become obsolete. As time goes on, the number of obsolete files can become fairly significant, taking up valuable space in the disk archive volume.
The sam-recycler(1M) utility can be used to process these obsolete images to reclaim space within the disk archive volume.
For additional help in recycling a full disk archive volume, please see Document 1011348.1
