    Default opt/zimbrra/db/data directory and disk space

    Is there a way to recover disk space or to optimize the opt/zimbra/db/data directory

    What do you mean recover? Are you running out of space? Are you using lvm? can you not increase the filesytem?

Just note that it temporarily locks each table, and could use considerable IO while they’re being rebuilt. You can certainly use it pro-actively during a maintenance window to reclaim space as well.

    Yes we are running out of disk space and are currently showing 100% full and it seems the /opt/zimbra/db/data directory is taking up a considerable amount of disk space. Just wanted to know if there was a way to optimize this directory. We are not using lvm.
