What are the .db files in the resin_data and watchdog_data folders in Resin home for? I ask because when they get large Resin takes a long time to start. I might end having a customer delete them as a work around but what is the disadvantage of that?

Hi skippopotamus,

resin-data contains session and object cache data, statistics, and the proxy cache. If you don't mind losing any of those things, you could delete them. I'd try moving them first, in case something unexpected breaks. BTW, I think Scott has fixed the slow startup and growing file problems in the latest 4.0.9 (due out this week), so you might not have to worry about it much longer.
