Software Update Space Reclamation¶
StarlingX provides functionality for reclaiming disk space used by older versions of software updates once newer versions have been committed.
The sw-patch commit command allows you to “commit” a set of software updates, which effectively locks down those updates and makes them unremovable. In doing so, StarlingX is able to free up the disk space in patch storage and the software repo.
This action is irreversible.
