MARS database purge

Unanswered Question
Aug 23rd, 2009

Hi All

I'm struggling to find on CCO how you can purge a MARS database from the CLI.

I dont want to use a recovery DVD as I have already built the box and its completely up to date, ... I just want to purge the entire database and start again from scratch, just like its been freshly built.



I have this problem too.

Each MARS Appliance seamlessly archives data using an expiration date that you specify. When the MARS internal storage reaches capacity, it automatically purges the data in the oldest partition of the local database, roughly 10% of the stored event and session data. The data in the NFS file share has a life span specified in days. Therefore, to keep a year's worth of data, you would specify 365 days as the value for the Remote Storage Capacity (in Days) field. All data older than 365 days is purged from the archive file.

Thanks for your response but I was actually after the CLI command that I can manually enter in to purge the MARS appliance.

I used 'pnreset' which did the trick.
