How to clean up airbyte-minio and what's stored in minio?


I ran into the issue that airbyte-minio suddenly exceeded the default provided disk space of 200MB (Providing more disk solved the issue).
However I have two questions about airbyte-minio:

  1. What’s actually stored in airbyte-minio?
  2. How can and should one clean up airbyte-minio?


Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.

For anyone also having this issue: Minio seems to mainly store the logs and therefore simply deleting the minio storage resolved this issue.

If you run on kubernetes, simply kubectl exec into the minio pod and delete the files and folders inside /storage/airbyte-dev-logs/job-logging/workspace/.
You might also want to delete files and folders inside /storage/airbyte-dev-logs/job-logging/workspace/
