Pruning Old Data from S3Guard Tables

S3Guard keeps tombstone markers of deleted files. It is good to clean these regularly, just to keep costs down. This can be done with the hadoop s3guard prune command. This can be used to delete entries older than a certain number of days, minutes or hours:

hadoop s3guard prune -days 3 -hours 6 -minutes 15 s3a://guarded-table/
