RunValueLogGC cannot be interrupted and can potentially run for minutes on a large enough datastore. This can be a problem if garbage collection is running on shutdown.
It would be nice to be able to pass a context to
RunValueLogGC to cancel the process early. Alternatively, allowing a concurrent call to
Close to interrupt a GC run would fix this. However, at the moment, close can’t be called concurrently with anything else.
Would a new
RunValueLogGCWithContext function be considered if a patch were proposed?
