Container data after deletion of account [closed]

Dear community,

I am using Openstack Swift. I have deleted an account, which comprises some containers which contain several MB of data. After the deletion, I do not observe a decrease of disk usage (displayed via swift-recon). Do you know if the containers of a respective account are deleted when an account is deleted?

The deletion of everything under a deleted account is the responsibility of the account reaper. Ensure that it is running on all your storage nodes that have accounts on them.
