dataset cleanup

Synopsis

codeql dataset cleanup [--mode=<mode>] <options>... [--] <dataset>

Description

[Plumbing] Clean up temporary files from a dataset.

Options

<dataset>

[Mandatory] Path to the raw QL dataset to clean up.

--max-disk-cache=<MB>

Set the maximum amount of space that the disk cache for intermediate query results can use.

If this size is not configured explicitly, the evaluator will try to use a “reasonable” amount of cache space, based on the size of the dataset and the complexity of the queries. Explicitly setting a higher limit than this default usage will enable additional caching which can speed up later queries.

--min-disk-free=<MB>

[Advanced] Set target amount of free space on file system.

If --max-disk-cache is not given, the evaluator will try hard to curtail disk cache usage if the free space on the file system drops below this value.

--min-disk-free-pct=<pct>

[Advanced] Set target fraction of free space on file system.

If --max-disk-cache is not given, the evaluator will try hard to curtail disk cache usage if the free space on the file system drops below this percentage.

-m, --mode=<mode>

Select how aggressively to trim the cache. Choices include:

brutal: Remove the entire cache, trimming down to the state of a freshly extracted dataset

normal (default): Trim everything except explicitly “cached” predicates.

light: Simply make sure the defined size limits for the disk cache are observed, deleting as many intermediates as necessary.

--cleanup-upgrade-backups

Delete any backup directories resulting from database upgrades.

--[no-]finalize-dataset

Finalize this dataset, making further attempts to import data into it fail. Passing this option allows some additional on-disk state to be deleted, but at the cost of sacrificing the ability to extend the dataset later.

Common options

-h, --help

Show this help text.

-J=<opt>

[Advanced] Give option to the JVM running the command.

(Beware that options containing spaces will not be handled correctly.)

-v, --verbose

Incrementally increase the number of progress messages printed.

-q, --quiet

Incrementally decrease the number of progress messages printed.

--verbosity=<level>

[Advanced] Explicitly set the verbosity level to one of errors, warnings, progress, progress+, progress++, progress+++. Overrides -v and -q.

--logdir=<dir>

[Advanced] Write detailed logs to one or more files in the given directory, with generated names that include timestamps and the name of the running subcommand.

(To write a log file with a name you have full control over, instead give --log-to-stderr and redirect stderr as desired.)
