How to delete conversations older than 7 days in rasa

I have deployed rasa x on server using docker compose method. I wanted to delete older conversations as it is occupying too much space.

Hi @swaraj18, which Rasa X version are you on? And how many conversations do you have? I suspect it’s probably something other than the conversations that are taking up the space

RASA_X_VERSION=0.33.0 RASA_VERSION=2.0.2

I don’t have many conversations though when i check my db folder is more than 100 MB

100MB is very normal, I’m afraid deleting conversations isn’t going to help much. But you can delete conversations through the Rasa X UI, or the API

For just 10-15 conversation it is 100 MB

And around 100 MB storage space is getting consumed every 24 hours

yes, because a lot of other data is stored in the database as well, and the general setup for the database takes some storage as well. There’s no way of reducing that

So a storage space of say 30 GB will get depleted within a couple of months ?

No. The 100MB of storage aren’t directly related to the number of conversations. e.g., a deployment we have with 64000 conversations, 5000 nlu examples, and 300 stories only takes up 15GB.

What can be done to reduce the memory consumption ? Like any method by which we stop storing conversation older than a week or a month or any other by which memory consumption can be reduced. Because occupying so much storage space (without having a mechanism for garbaging) is not a scalable solution

are you talking about memory or storage space? 100MB is not a lot of storage, it’s very normal for a database to take up a bit of storage. If you need to delete conversations, you can use the UI, or the API endpoint for that.

Storage and can you share the link for the api endpoint (delete method)
