DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)

Issue/Introduction

Opened on behalf of Robert. 

usage_metering configure GUI does not have a delete function to remove old reports. 

Deleting the files from disk in the $\Nimsoft\probes\service\usage_metering\reports folder does not effect the list of reports that shows up in the GUI. 

The list of reports is maintained in usage_metering.h2.db. 

The callback get_calculation_report_list_gui provides the data shown in the list of reports. 

Running the callback _delete_file and then run_db_cleanup_thread_now does not remove the reports from the list. 

This was done in my uim 20.4 lab. 

Environment

Release : 20.4

Component : UIM - USAGE_METERING/BILLING

Resolution

As per development: This functionality is not currently supported in the probe. This should be an enhancement request and need to approved by PM.
