How can we delete commit logs to free up space?

Hi,

Can you please suggest how we can delete the commit log as it's taking a log of space?

Thanks

The commit logs are the commits for incoming writes to your cluster from the application. You don't delete them.

If commit logs are not getting flushed/recycled, it's an indication of another problem.

Please log a ticket with DataStax Support and attach a Diagnostics Report from OpsCenter so one of our engineers can assist you with the investigation. Cheers!
