App::Chart::Vacuum -- compact and cleanup the database


App::Chart::Vacuum::vacuum (key=>value, ...)

Run the vacuum cleaner over the database.

Latest price and intraday image records older than 14 days are deleted and the SQLite VACUUM command is run to compact the database.sqdb and notes.sqdb files. Consistency checks on the symbol list contents are applied. Status messages and compacted sizes are printed.

This is the operative part of the --vacuum command line option and the Vacuum dialog box.
