the transformed-plugins folder grows heavily

Hello,

our EAR instance of confluence has the following folder that is 8.3Gb:

/confluence-data/plugins-osgi-cache/transformed-plugins

There is inside every version of plugins deployed on the server.

Can I delete the content of this folder, and reboot the server?

We dont connect to the Atlassian Plugin Exchange because of firewall and security reason.

Thanks for help.

Michael

You should be able to safely move all of the plugin cache folders out of the way, the plugins themselves are stored in the database & copied out to the filesystem on startup.

You may find that startup takes a little longer the first time around though ;)

Thanks Alain,

I will remove all the files then....

Personally I would rename the folders, I only delete things when I've confirmed that it works as I expect it to ;)

that sounds clever.

Do you mean renaming the "transformed-plugins" folder ?

I would go with renaming the entire cache folder (eg: plugins-osgi-cache -> plugins-osgi-cache.bak)

Note: shut confluence down before you rename the folder, it should get recreated as it comes back up.

OK thanks. I will do that tonight...

sincerly,

Michael
