Prune Snapshots

This is a NuoDB Manager command. See NuoDB Manager.


Applies a snapshot retention policy that you specify to identify database snapshots that can be removed from an SSM's snapshot archive. A prune snapshots operation does not move or delete any snapshots. It is up to you to remove the identified snapshots. For additional information, see Freeing Storage Space Used by Old Snapshots.
