meta key size on disk?
Hi everyone -
We are looking to optimize our meta key storage on Concentrators. Is there any way to report on the total disk size used per meta key? Obviously, if we never use a particular Meta key and it's using a lot of disk, we would want to deleta that key and values. EX: ethernet source / ethernet destination. Not really useful in modern routed networks, since proxy arp masks the real mac addresses.
Dave Glover has a script that you can run on your concentrator that looks at meta usage. I would find it and send it to you but I've been trying all day and couldn't get there (and I'm sure you're anxious to get an answer).
It's no possible to delete existing meta keys. But you can configure the Network browser so it doesn't create the ethernet source and dest meta keys going forward. This is true of any meta key you don't find useful for any parser.
