FISHEYE_HOME size

This weekend I upgraded our FishEye/Crucible from 3.3.3 to 3.5.4.  Just to be safe, I first ran "tar cjvf 2014_10_13-fecru-3.3.3.tar.bz FISHEYE_INST".  This operation took approximately 75 minutes and created a tar-ball that is 12Gb in size.  I was quite surprised to see such a large compressed file.  Is this normal?  Is there some operation I should be regularly running to trim our FISHEYE_HOME directory?

Hi Neil,

The FISHEYE_INST directory holds all the data related to your repository cache, so depending on the size of your repositories, it may consume a big amount of space. Could you please confirm the original size of this directory?

By "original size" I assume mean the size of the directory, before tar'ing and compressing, right? "du -sh FISHEYE_INST" reports 23Gb, so yes, it's pretty large.  If that's normal, then I don't have a problem with it; I just wanted to make sure that there isn't some normal maintenance which I've been inadvertantly skipping.
