Shrink Ibdata1 File

by Apr 16, 2008

Hi Support,
I am having uptime setup in my environment. I have noticed that i am running out of space on /opt/uptime4 mount.
On further investigation i found that “ibdata1″ in /opt/uptime4/datastore/data is occupying the maximum space.
Will be great if i can be explained the use of this file, its function and a way to shrink this file if possible.
Also, If any archive process available and its implication on uptime report.
