Cleanup command very long

To do maintenance on my Discourse instances, I tried to use

./launcher cleanup app

command, but it seems to be blocked : I launched the command minutes ago, and nothing happens (and no space is freed on the disk).

(I reproduce the problem on multiple up-to-date instances)

Can the command be very long to execute ?

Yes, I can confirm this. Whatever

./launcher cleanup

is trying to do, it’s just hanging now @saj

root@endoffice-a:/var/discourse# ./launcher cleanup app

It looks like we replaced the old spotify/docker-gc with the built in Docker command

$docker_path system prune -a

That seems to work fine for me though, when entered manually:

root@endoffice-a:/var/discourse# docker system prune -a

Total reclaimed space: 2.874GB

Hopefully it’s some minor thing regarding BASH code, I dunno.


Hi @samyrabih,

Sorry about that! This has been fixed. Please git pull the latest launcher and try again.


Confirmed! Fix works for me, thanks @saj :beers:
