2.14.1 doesn't fix database bloat


The advertised fix list says 2.14.1 fixes the database bloat that we’ve seen since 2.9 or so.

I had been running a workaround job twice a day:

console core:purge-old-archive-data 2015-07-01 2015-06-01 --include-year-archives

I stopped running this when I installed 2.14.1, assuming the problem had been fixed. I looked at the DB today and saw that it was back to its bad behavior (6x as many rows as with 2.9, or whatever it was; 2x as many rows as last month).

I ran the workaround and it got me back to the bad old days (triple the size of before, but not 6x).

I re-enabled the jobs.

Hi there,

The bug is not fully fixed so we have reopened the issue on Github, and removed the bug fix announcement from the changelog.

Thank you for letting us know!
