Database is getting huge - how to prune?

Recommended Posts

I bet this topic already is in a forum, but had a little trouble finding it. I apologize in advance.

Thanks to having a robust clientele and lots of advertising, our database is also getting really big.

Are there tips on how to prune the database to keep its size manageable? For example, I have emptied the _userlog table. I don't really need to see who's logged or when. It was good for about 1.5 MB. The biggest tables are data_intermediate_ad and data_summary_ad_hourly. 

Is it safe th empty those? Or, is there a recommendation on how to at least prune them?

I can run sql commands, but am only at an intermediate skill level on that. So, any help construction such commands would be appreciated.

How far back does your reporting go?

It sounds like you have a few years worth of data. You could remove all hourly reporting for campaigns older than 1 year for example. 

Same issue here. How do you do this? 

Is there a way to prune old data after X years? Or at least email sponsors their stats instead of having it recorded?
