IDS Security Monitor not running reports (VMS 2.1.1)

Recently, my IDS Security Monitor server has stopped running crucial reports. I have attempted to even run the most basic of reports that contain little data and querying. Is there anything that I can check?

Maybe you want to clean up some event entries from the database and then run a backup to reclaim the disk space used by the idsmdc.log file.

Cleanup utility is idspruning.exe.... details below;

After cleanup, on the VMS server, VPN/Security MgmtSoln--> Administration---> CommonServices--> Backup Database.

Now try running the reports.

Thanks,

Thanks for the information. I want to make sure that I'm doing this right:

I have deleted the millions of alerts that I do not need through the VMS SecMon Event Viewer, now I run 'idspruning -r"alerts" -p'.

Does that sound right?

Yes Coby. I'll do the

idspruning -r"alerts" -p

idspruning -r"syslog" -p ===> if necessary

then run the backup from the VPN/Sec Management Soln-->--> Administration---> CommonServices--> Backup Database

and then run the reports.

Thanks,

yatin
