Repository tools command to compact index files

Use the compacttdb command to make database indexes more compact.


Note: This command is not supported in a cluster environment.
Jazz Foundation Services use the Jena TDB database to store and query over RDF data. Special circumstances can cause the TDB indexes to grow large. The compacttdb command alleviates this problem by forcing a compaction of the indexes.
Important: You must shut down the server before you run the command.


Attribute Description Required Default
srcdir The directory containing the RDF indexes to be compacted. Yes N/A
tempdir The temporary directory to use while compacting the RDF indexes No tmp Path to the file. No conf/application/

where application is jts, ccm, rm, qm, gc, dcc, or relm.

force It forces all indexes to be compacted. If it is set to false, only indexes managed by the server is compacted. No False


The following example is for Jazz® Team Server. To use this command for other applications, run these options from the server directory:
  • IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (Change and Configuration Management application): repotools-ccm
  • IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® Next (Requirements Management application): repotools-rm
  • IBM Engineering Test Management (Quality Management application): repotools-qm
  • Global Configuration Management: repotools-gc
  • Data Collection Component: repotools-dcc
  • IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights: repotools-relm

For Windows operating system Open a command prompt and enter this command:

cd C:\Program Files\IBM\JazzTeamServer\server\
repotools-jts.bat -compacttdb srcdir=C:\RDF_indexes tempdir=C:\tmp
Note: On UNIX platforms such as Linux or AIX, the compacttdb command must be run with the same user ID that will start the application. This ensures that the application can access the files and change them when needed.

For Unix operating systems Open a command line and enter this command:

cd opt/IBM/JazzTeamServer/server
./ -compacttdb srcdir=opt/RDF_indexes tempdir=opt/tmp
