How to clean up or remove all data that is generated when Selfmonitoring is activated using Selfmonitoring SOI 4.2 CU3 Manager configuration. 




Release : SOI 4.2 CU3

Component : Selfmonitoring 


Data removal 


SelfMonitoring uses Universal Connector to collect and publish, so user may use “cleanImportedData” option in Soitoolbox command.

 Ex:  soitoolbox --machine=<DB Host> --dbName=SAMStore --dbUsername=sa --dbPassword=<sa password> --cleanImportedData --connector="CA:09997_<Hostname>"


it removes all Universal Connector data along with Selfmonitoring.



Additional Information

This is the out-of-the-box solution available to clean up universal connector data (which includes self-monitoring data). But if the user does not wish to delete all the data then there is no out-of-the-box solution to clean up only the self-monitoring alerts. 
One thing the user can try is to clear inactive alerts by running the purgeClearedAlerts this might help because the self-monitoring alerts will be auto cleared whenever the services are back to normal. Please note that other data like Services will still remain.
