mass acknowledgement?

IHAC for which I need to identify a process to perform a mass acknowledgement of all existing events/alerts on an Operations Manager instance.  Is there a 'dfm option' I can leveredge here?  Or some other option?

Thanks,

Rick Stading

Hi Rick,

          Attached is a simple script written by one of my collegues, to acknowledge and delete dfm events.

What you may do is comment out the delete part and use it.

This thing may not even need a script, a simple shell command one line will do it.

On LINUX host:

for i in `dfm event list -q|tr -s ' '|cut -d " " -f 2`; do dfm event ack $i; done

This will work on windows as well if you use cygwin host.

warm regards,

Abhishek

I think you missed it. I mentioned this in my last post itself that this works with windows as well if the users use a cygwin environment. cygwin a great utility for windows.

Not hardly. It needs a perl installation on windows.

Infact cygwin comes with Perl as well or anything one always wanted in a windows environment.

Re: mass acknowledgement?

Hello together,

i have solved this with an Powershell Script:

<dfm-event-delete.ps1>

dfm event list -q | Select-String -Pattern "(?<ID>[0-9]+)" | select-object @{Name="ID";Expression={$_.Matches[0].Groups["ID"].Value}} | foreach {dfm event delete $_.ID}

</dfm-event-delete.ps1>

Re: mass acknowledgement?

Hi everybody

Is there a way to enhance the POSH script to ONLY delete the INFORMATION Events?

My customer is having to delete up to 3000 Information Events per day...

Thanks in advance,

Peter

Re: mass acknowledgement?

Perhaps it helps to list only all the information events:

dfm event list -S information

Re: mass acknowledgement?

Sounds like a good idea, thanks.

I've just installed 5.2RC1 and found out there is a new command: dfm purge, which could help us getting this done.

Hi Peter,

     OCUM 5.2 has a feature, which during upgrade or restore deletes all events irrespective of the severity beyond the minimum of (value of eventsPurgeInterval or 180days).

And as you said, there is the dfm purge cli's as well.

Hi Peter,

Had the same problem. I wrote the attached Windows Command-Line Script for getting this done.

Hi Peter,

         With OCUM 5.2RC1 and later, you may not need this, as there is a inbuilt cli to purge the events.
