Re: [p2-dev] Pool cleaner needed

If -profile is not specified, then the default profile is being GC'ed

So what is the functional difference between calling GC with or without -profile option? Once I have these questions answered, I will update the wiki.

Nope. The best you can get is run the GC from the an application that belongs to the bundle pool.
Then you can specify the -profile option to specify which profile to GC.

Thanks! That does the trick. I found a reference to the GC tool on the wiki, but on the wiki the tool is called on a certain profile. Could you clarify the semantics of calling GC with or without a profile?

p2 provides a GC application to deal with these cases
Try the following command line:

I am working on updating Sapphire build system to use a shared bundle pool for all the Eclipse installs that are created in the course of the build. What I am struggling with is how to clean the pool so that it doesnât grow without bound. The build does remove old profiles, but p2 doesnât seem to be performing any pool cleanup in the director invocation.

Â

Is there another p2 application that I should be calling to scrub the pool?
