    Removing Unwanted Data

    After an extended period of use, it may become necessary to remove unwanted user data from the Primo directory structure.
    To remove unwanted data:
    1. Verify that there are no pipes running.
    2. Enter the be_pipes alias to move to the pipes directory. For example:
      be_pipes
    3. Enter the pwd command to display the PATH of the current directory:
      /exlibris/primo/p1_1/ng/primo/home/profile/publish/publish/production/pipes
    4. Enter the ls command to display the contents of the directory. For example:
      ls
      Blue_Bay_Aleph/Primo_Demo_Marc_Pipe/
      Blue_Bay_Aleph_No_Harvest/Primo_Demo_Metalib_Pipe/
      Blue_Bay_Digitol/Primo_Demo_Metalib_Update_DS/
    5. Enter the following commands to move to a pipe directory:
      cd <pipe name>/<source code>
    6. Enter the ls command to display the contents of the directory. For example:
      ls
      2008-11-20@19.00.56/ 2008-11-20@19.17.18/ 2008-11-20@19.25.04/
      2008-11-20@19.14.32/ 2008-11-20@19.17.28/ 2008-11-20@19.37.32/
    7. Enter the following command to remove all directories and subdirectories from the current directory:
      rm -r *
    8. Enter the <fe|be|se>_log alias to move to the logs directory. For example:
      be_log
    9. Delete the contents of each log directory.
