In a recent conversation on the Operators list  there was a
discussion about purging
archived data in the database. It would seem to me an important step in
environment which should be done from time to time and perhaps at the
very least prior
to a major upgrade.
What’re the thoughts on how often this should be done? Should we
include it as an opt-in
step, or an opt-out step?
Is OpenStack-Ansible now going to get into the minutae of operating
the entire cloud? I was under the impression that it left the easy
things to the operators (e.g., deciding when and how to purge the
database) while taking care of the things that are less obvious
(setting up OpenStack, and interacting with the database directly to
only set up things for the services).
That’s a good question which betrays the fact that I phrased my question
The question is whether we should do something like this:
1) As part of the normal execution of the service playbooks;
2) As part of the automated major upgrade (i.e. The step is not optional);
3) As part of the manual major upgrade (i.e. The step is optional);
If never, it might be useful for our community to curate a few bits of
operations tooling to automated this sort of thing on demand. The tooling
can be placed into the Ops repository  if this is done.
