Is the truncate function persistent?

durable-deletion

#1

Hi. The new truncate function is brilliant for us removing redundant data in the CE edition on server restart as it seems to be lightning fast, and so far very consistent across the cluster. The question I am wondering is if this setting is persistent?

When running the function, I can see in AQL that a timestamp is applied to the set under the truncate_lut heading, and so does that mean that upon restart anything older than this timestamp will automatically be deleted?

Thanks

The durability aspect is only in the EE version, similar for record level deletes. Therefore, on CE, the setting is not persisted through restart.
