IME 7.0.1 disk space management

Answered Question
Jul 29th, 2010

Hello,

Anyone has any idea how to clear old logs, tables and events from IME server (not on the sensor itself)

as it collected 13GB of data under C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Cisco IPS Manager Express\MYSQL\data\alarmDB

I did adjusted values for archiving in Tools -> Preferences -> Data Archive but how to get rid of already existing files

in that folder.

Thanks in advance,

Oleg

I have this problem too.

Oleg,

You can stop the IME service and then manually remove the contents of the following directory:

C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Cisco IPS Manager Express\MYSQL\data\alarmDB

The above is if IME is installed into the default location. The alarmDB directory contains all the data. I would suggest to copy it out and archiving it somewhere in case you ever want to look at it again later. Once the alarmDB is cleared out you can start the IME service again.

Thanks,
