Old samples in UIM database - alarm message


Article ID: 38080


Updated On:


DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM) NIMSOFT PROBES



- How can I resolve the following error message which is produced every day?

Nimsoft database [UIMDATABASENAME] table RN_QOS_DATA_XXXX has old samples in latest partition XXX when they should no longer be in this partition 



- This situation can be produced if the data_engine configuration has the following setting configured “delete_history_samples = 0”

When "delete_history_samples = 0" , no QoS data will be deleted from the database on maintenance, regardless of what delete_raw_samples had been set to.

By default, on a CA UIM install, this value is set to 720.

Consider increasing the value from 0 to a higher number, restart the data_engine probe, and the problem should be resolved.


Additional Information:



- As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA UIM if you have further questions.
