How can I delete all pingable devices?

How can I remove all pingable devices from NetOps Performance Management / PM

Resolution

This can be accomplished via a script that is available from Support.  The syntax and instructions are as follows:

Usage: deleteAllPingableDevices.pl -da server [-b batchsize] [-sl sleepSeconds]

Unless there is a specific reason, the defaults for batchsize and sleepSeconds is perfectly acceptable so one would run the script as so:

./deleteAllPingableDevices.pl -da my.da_hostname.my.domain.net

Additional Information

Please note that this script does NOT currently support HTTPS enabled Data Aggregators nor non-default REST ports outside of :8581

 

Please raise a case with Support and request a copy of the deleteAllPingableDevices.pl script that is associated with this KB Article.
