Database Maintenance

Your Database will require maintenance as nothing in Nightscout is setup to perform cleanup and unless you planned for a larger size database it will eventually fill-up. Make sure you leave dbsize visible on your page to keep it under control.


This panel will give access to basic maintenance actions on various database collections as defined in your site core variables.


Mongo status Database


Your status database contains battery, pump, ... extra information as those defined in devicestatus that you can safely delete when necessary.


When it comes to treatments and entries, deleting data is something you need to carefully evaluate if you like Nightscout to be the main repository for your history.

Mongo treatments Database



Mongo entries Database



Remove future items from Database
