I have very old events in my event history in DFM ( version: 188.8.131.5232) - from 2006. My server is getting poor performance. How can I delete old events?
I found on NOW thay you can change the default value for "events purge interval" (under setup -> options --> events and alerts) of 6 months to lower period keeping the events in history. But if I would do that it would just take affect on the NEW events and not on the old events, so I am not able to delete the old events.
Does someone has an idea how I can delete in DFM the old events from history view?
Thanks a lot!
If you have good ideas or work-around you can write me directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
DFM deletes only 10000 events in one run, so it is possible that most of them remained even after changing the eventsPurgeInterval. The number of events deleted in one run (by default 10000) is modifiable using the "eventPurgeMaxEvents" hidden option. I would suggest you set this to a larger value using:
"dfm option set eventPurgeMaxEvents=100000"
or some such value.
I would suggest you record the number of events to see if the deletion succeeds. You can use:
