Working with large files can require a lot of disk space, and managing the available space effectively is very important. XamFlow offers various features to reduce and reclaim used disk space.
User Data Mapping¶
User Data mappings allow using existing files in XamFlow without duplicating them. These can be located on any number of disk drives or on network attached storage.
Once a project is not actively used anymore, the project can be archived and moved to some other storage medium like tape or network attached storage.
See XamFlow Server Backup Guide and XamFlow Workstation Backup Guide.
Disk Space UI¶
This UI allows deleting data irrecoverably and requires expert handling. Please carefully read this document and consult with your system administrator or IT department.
Use the menuto open the XamFlow Disk Space UI.
Click a project or workflow and use the
Check Size button to scan the disk and calculate how much space is used.
The area on the right visualizes the relative amount of space required.
Delete Project or Workflow¶
Delete button allows to irrecoverably delete an entire project or workflow and all tasks and all jobs and all associated data.
Make sure any required original, intermediate and result data is fully archived first.
Note that data associated with a project or workflow might still be referenced by other projects or workflows, which can cause problems when it gets deleted.
Delete Obsolete Jobs¶
Delete Obsolete Jobs button allows to irrecoverably delete all obsolete jobs and all associated data.
Obsolete jobs may exist because an entire run was marked as obsolete, or because a new job version was created.
Note that data associated with obsolete jobs might still be referenced by other jobs, which can cause problems when it gets deleted.
Delete Transient Job Results¶
Delete Transient Job Results button allows to irrecoverably delete result data associated with jobs of tasks that were marked as transient.
Note that job results associated with with transient tasks might still be referenced by other jobs, which can cause problems when it gets deleted.
