This topic describes how to delete database objects to create additional capacity.

Deleting unused or outdated objects should be a regular part of Delphix Engine administration. This is especially important to prevent low space errors, which can cause the Delphix Engine to stop. The Delphix Engine holds a maximum of 400 objects.


  1. Log into the Delphix Management application.
  2. Select Resources > Storage Capacity.
  3. Select the groups or objects you want to delete.
    As you select items, you will see them added to the Information Card. When you select a Dataset all its associated snapshots will be selected.
  4. Click Delete.


If there are dependencies on the snapshot, you will not be able to delete the snapshot free space; the dependencies rely on the data associated with the snapshot. These items are displayed with a lock icon next to the name.
