Questions about database access in WCS 7.x version

Hello,

In WCS version 7.x, events from controllers are stored in database. The limits for these events are 7 days and 40000 events. Does anyone know where  we could change these limits?

In the other hand, we can´t access to database because we don´t know user and password to access database. Can anyone pass me default credentials for database?

What is the procedure to change database password in WCS version 7.x?

Thnaks in advance.

Questions about database access in WCS 7.x version

Don't know about username and password for the database, but this might help:

Q. How many alarms are kept in the WCS when are they cleared, and what is the average size of each alarm?

A. The WCS keeps the last 40,000 events in the system and clears them up after seven days. An event or alarm can have 1000 bytes on average.

A. Under the <WCS_INSTAL_DIR>/webnms/conf folder, there is a file called NmsProcessesBE.conf. Within this file, the user needs to modify the parameter CLEAN_EVENT_INTERVAL (default value is seven days) and the parameter EVENT_WINDOW_SIZE (default value is 40,000). The server needs to be stopped and restarted after the user makes the modifications.

Questions about database access in WCS 7.x version

Thanks Scott,

I'll try to find more information about procedure for change of password for database. There is a procedure for WCS, but in WCS 7.x version it doesn`t work because password option isn´t  available. Sound familiar?

Thanks

Questions about database access in WCS 7.x version

Hello Scott,

The NmsprocessesBE.conf doesn´t exist in my WCS. It is on linux system and its version is 7.0.220.0. Is there a change with this version?
