I've been reloading the same dataset to the same database repeatedly (for the purpose of optimizing my data pipeline) and observed that the store size has been always growing. What is the reason of this and what can I do to release the space? I have an database admin role but do not have access to server configuration.
Thanks in advance.
The growth is transaction logs. They will rotate out and delete according to the transaction log rotation policy in the neo configs. Transaction logs contain the data you’re sending in the database. So even if you are throwing the same data at it to test cypher or changing dates to ingest large amounts of data, the tx logs will grow. But rotation policy will prune out the logs based on the set schedule. And the DB size or Hdd usage will go down.
