RhodeCode Session Storage Growing Out Of Control

Written by William Roush on October 11, 2016 at 6:13 pm

Had a fun run in with RhodeCode recently, it’s session storage located at /home/rhodecode/.rccontrol/community-1/data/sessions was eating up 401981 inodes! Eek!

This is caused by the built-in default session manager lib not cleaning up old files, I had stumbled across this blog detailing how to “fix” it: http://it-spir.it/blog/2012-03-31-rhodecode-remove-outdated-session-data.html¬†and I ended up with this in my crontab:

0 1 * * * find /home/rhodecode/.rccontrol/community-1/data/sessions -type f -mtime +3 -exec rm {} \;

Alas this wasn’t really what I wanted, so I asked on the RhodeCode-Community Slack channel fix is to use something like the database for session storage as seen here: https://docs.rhodecode.com/RhodeCode-Enterprise/admin/tuning-increase-db-performance.html


A quick enabling of beaker’s database session storage and I was all better!
