Issue/Introduction

The number of files in the SRM Database directory $SPECROOT/mysql/data/reporting, is growing at an increasing rate with thousands of what appear to be unprocessed/stale modelcreateddestroybucket table files.

No relevant error or warnings are shown in stdout.log pertaining to SRM.

Cause

There are so many stale bucket tables that the system is unable to catch up with the backlog and they keep increasing in number as new data comes in.

Environment

DX NetOps 21.2 Spectrum

Resolution

Check if the instant_poller_time (Spectrum WEB GUI -> Report manager -> Preferences page ) is set to default 5 min. If it is, then increase it to 55 as this should give the system time to process the stale buckets. 

Also, make sure that the Primary Archive manager is connected and the event poller is processing the events.
