Issue/Introduction

We are planning to decommission TIM/ CEM/ MTPs. Can you help us with appropriate steps to follow the decom process.

We will first decom it in QA and then in our production environment.


Environment

Release : 10.7.0

Component : APM Agents

Resolution

This is actually fairly easy. You paid for the device, so you may dispose it as you see fit.

Here are some uninstall procedures:

1) uninstall TIM

2) If you want to purge old data, the page is available under the VMTP web UI Administration tab.  Use this page and select the "Purge all data and metric database tables" option.   This option will purge all data files as well as data in the Vertica metrics database plus stop the processes responsible for collecting data so no new data is generated.

Purging the data can also be done via the Linux command line by running the following command:

 sudo  /opt/NetQoS/scripts/nqPurgeData.php  --allDates  --allData

3) MTP 11.0.2
Uninstalling the Software
The uninstall script removes a previous installation of CA Virtual Multi-Port Monitor.
Uninstalling CA Virtual Multi-Port Monitor has the following results:
The home directory is cleared and CA VMTP-added users are removed (for example, dbadmin).
The data components (databases, capture folders) are cleared and removed.
System configuration related to CA Virtual Multi-Port Monitor is restored to its pre-installation
state (for example, httpd.conf and snmpd.conf).
Vertica and other prerequisite files are uninstalled.
CA Virtual Multi-Port Monitor can be re-installed on an "uninstalled" system.
Note: Required OS packages will not be removed by an uninstall.
Follow these steps:
From outside the /opt/NetQoS directory, run:
/opt/NetQoS/scripts/uninstall_VMTP.sh  -- may have a different name depending on the release.
