Configuration Objects, Data, and other configuration items stored in the
database that are deleted or purged are not physically removed from the
underlying application database.
Consequently, if your business
atmosphere requires you to perform frequent purges (data and auditing),
the size of the internal database can grow substantially over time. The
data compression utility will reclaim, from the DBMS and local file
system, the storage consumed by deleted or purged data. EXTOL Secure’s data
compression utility can only be used when the ESX Server is stopped and
Users might want to consider integrating the
database compression utility as part of disk image backups.
