$PostgreSQL: pgsql/contrib/vacuumlo/README.vacuumlo,v 1.4 2003/11/29 19:51:36 pgsql Exp $ This is a simple utility that will remove any orphaned large objects out of a PostgreSQL database. An orphaned LO is considered to be any LO whose OID does not appear in any OID data column of the database. Compiling -------- Simply run make. A single executable "vacuumlo" is created. Usage ----- vacuumlo [options] database [database2 ... databasen] All databases named on the command line are processed. Available options include: -v Write a lot of progress messages -n Don't remove large objects, just show what would be done -U username Username to connect as -W Prompt for password -h hostname Database server host -p port Database server port Method ------ First, it builds a temporary table which contains all of the OIDs of the large objects in that database. It then scans through all columns in the database that are of type "oid" or "lo", and removes matching entries from the temporary table. The remaining entries in the temp table identify orphaned LOs. These are removed. Notes ----- I decided to place this in contrib as it needs further testing, but hopefully, this (or a variant of it) would make it into the backend as a "vacuum lo" command in a later release.
