How to remove log files without making catastropic recovery impossible ?
I.e., I find having replicas a much more effective disaster
recovery mechanism than log files that are susceptible to other problems.
Ok... I get that. Replicas are good for recovery.
However I still would expect that there were some way to retire very old
log files by creating a backup snapshot representing the state at some
point in time and deleting all log files which decribed transactions
included in that state.
...and then later do recovery with that snapshot and the newer log files
from the active environment.
Are you saying that to be safe you have to keep the log.000000001 _for
If so, I think the FAQ needs an update.
