We need to write a custom garbage collection solution for RBS. I just wanted to know which tables should I look into for detection of garbage and which tables/rows must be must be updated/deleted after its cleaned from the BLOB store.

We don't want to use Maintainer.exe

Hi Faisal,

Is there a particular reason why you don't want to use Maintainer.exe? Writing custom garbage collection will depend on which RBS provider are you using. Are you also writing a custom provider?

Yes, we have our own RBS provider implemented and we want more control over garbage collection by doing it ourselves.
