Managing Local Storage¶
All of the local titan storage, including the data stored on repositories,
is kept in a single docker volume
titan-data. This volume will persist
even across restarts of the titan infrastructure, upgrades of docker, and
other changes on the host.
By default, the
titan-data volume is created as a vanilla docker volume,
which uses storage locally on the host system. If you want to use different
storage for your titan work, you can manually create the
volume yourself prior to running titan install.
Do not manually change the contents of the
titan-data volume, and do
not change the volume on a running system; use
titan uninstall first.
Changing the contents of this volume can have unpredictable effects on
If you do create your own
titan-data volume, be aware that it will
automatically destroyed when
titan uninstall is run. There is not
currently a way to uninstall titan while preserving the underlying
Managing Storage Usage¶
Titan does not currently support showing the space used by repositories or by individual commits. And while removing repositories is supported, deleting commits is not. These capabilities will be added in a future release.
