Purging the Profiler Database (NSM Procedure)

Data discovered by Profiler is stored in a database located on the NSM GUI server. When the database reaches a maximum size (4 GB by default), it begins purging records (oldest first) automatically. The Profiler stops purging records when it reaches a certain set minimum size (3 GB by default).

Use the steps in this procedure to purge the Profiler database, if needed.

To change automatic purge settings, from the NSM main menu select Tools > Preferences and modify the Profiler database settings.

To manually purge the database:

  1. In the NSM Navigation tree, select Investigate > Security Monitor > Profiler.
  2. Click the Clear All DB icon in the upper right corner.
