Releasing files from SSD to an object store using the CLI

Content Software for File CLI Reference

Part Number

Using the manual release command, it is possible to clear SSD space in advance (for example, for shrinking one filesystem SSD capacity for a different filesystem without releasing important data, or for a job that needs more SSDs space from different files). The metadata will still remain on SSD for fast traversal over files and directories but the data will be marked for release and will be released to the object-store as soon as possible, and before any other files are scheduled to release due to other lifecycle policies.
