scavenging has low priority?


From the logs we can see that:

“… AdminController ] Request scavenging because /admin/scavenge request has been received.”

But no further scavenging relevant log entries exist…

Is there some upper bound on when scavenging will start?

scavenging will start when requested and there should be some logs after.

there are time when you request scavenging and nothing happens however e.g.:

if you request and you only have a single chunk (you don't scavenge
the active chunk)
if your request and after looking it would cost space to scavenge
(e.g. space for the position map is larger than what you would delete)
