SOIToolbox options that would not require shutting down SOI Services:

 

soitoolbox.exe -x -q -s --purgeClearedAlerts=365

soitoolbox.exe -x -q -s --cleanHistoryData=365

soitoolbox.exe -x -q -s --purgeOutageAlerts

soitoolbox.exe -x -q -s --purgeAlertQueueAssignment

soitoolbox.exe -x -q -s --rebuildIndexes
