disabled datasources

I disabled a datasource using the coordinator console UI.

I see that in the Mysql druids_segments table the datasource is still listed but the used flag is flipped to 0.

Is there anyway to reclaim the space of disabled datasource segments?

Is there an automatic garbage collection process that happens?


You can send a kill task ( http://druid.io/docs/0.7.3/Tasks.html#kill-task ) to reclaim space used by disabled segments.
