Q. It looks like sometimes I can’t truncate a space. The only way to get it to work is to drop and recreate it. I’m using Tarantool 220.127.116.11.g014d03f-1. (2017)
A. You need to upgrade Tarantool, it’s not the latest version.
We redesigned the truncate operation to be much more robust - it used to drop and create indexes one by one, but now it's a single operation in the storage engine and in the WAL.
