Is there a feature in DFM 2.0.9 that will let me Clear Alerts in Bulk (CLI or GUI) ?


Would Restarting the DFM process can do it ?

Thanks \\ Naman

This is not possible. Restarting will also not help as the only thing that can clear an event is for the underlying problem to go away, or have someone manually clear it.

If i don't care for the Alerts stored so far, Will re-initializing the Alerts DB would help ? Or Is there No DB for Alerts Only ?

What would be command for this, if above is possible ?

Thanks again,

Reinitializing one DFM database may cause synchronization problems, and force you to reinitialize all of them anyway. However, you can try:

NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/ dsn=dfmEpm dmprefix=EPM

The active events should be pulled from the EMC DFM repository.
