Bug Description

Reclaim age is a very specific tunable that has to do with cleaning up tombstone entries and should be tied to not only your consistency engine cycle time - but also the age at which you can safely re-introduce hardware that has been out of the cluster. It is *very* long.

The same value is also in-explicably used to determine how long to wait before reaping temporary files - generally the default reclaim age is much too long - and specifically it's not in anyway related to tombstone reaping.

The time window/value used with unlink_older_than in the db/object-replciator should be a separate tunable from reclaim age - and also much lower.
