seed --cleanup

Description

NOTE: You should run the seeding cleaner only when the system is idle and no ingests or replications tasks are in progress. When the seeding cleaner is run during replication, for example, there is a chance of missing data during the seeding process. However, this data will eventually be sent during resync.

Syntax

Result

Successfully added seed ZL logs to cleaner queue

Remove the target device. This is an important step without which stats and other information will not be saved on the target device.
