3.1.1.3.3.8 doGarbageCollection

3.1.1.3.3.8 doGarbageCollection

This operation requests that garbage collection be immediately performed on the DC. Tombstones and recycled-objects are subject to the requirement that they must be kept for at least the tombstone lifetime (see 3.1.1.6.2), but they may be kept longer. Deleted-objects are subject to the requirement that they must be kept for at least the deleted-object lifetime. Garbage collection identifies tombstones and recycled-objects that have been kept for at least the tombstone lifetime and removes them. Additionally, garbage collection identifies deleted-objects that have been kept for at least the deleted-object lifetime and transforms them to recycled-objects. On a correctly functioning DC, there should not be a need to manually trigger garbage collection via this operation. The requester must have the "Do-Garbage-Collection" control access right on the DC's DSA object.

This operation is triggered by setting the doGarbageCollection attribute to "1".

The following shows an LDIF sample that performs this operation.
