<blockquote>BGREWRITEAOF rewrites the Append Only File in background when it gets toobig. The Redis Append Only File is a Journal, so every operation modifyingthe dataset is logged in the Append Only File (and replayed at startup).This means that the Append Only File always grows. In order to rebuildits content the BGREWRITEAOF creates a new version of the append only filestarting directly form the dataset in memory in order to guarantee thegeneration of the minimal number of commands needed to rebuild the database.</blockquote>
