INN FAQ Part 7

Be sure to read the "RKT couplings" below for additional information and updates to this entry.

Subject: (7.54) Expire is slooooooow

Q: Expire takes 20 hours on my system to complete.

First of all you should call news.daily with the delayrm option (see
also INN FAQ #2.12, INN FAQ #4.18, INN FAQ #4.19, INN FAQ #5.13). If this is still too slow, then it
could be that the list passed to "fastrm" is too large to be sorted by
the sort(1) command, typically because /tmp is too small. Try setting
TMPDIR in innshellvars.
