Following up on a topology cleaning project to remove old data from the database - using SOL52431 - it is still noticeable that old or expired alarms from years before are still showing up in the FMS console.
How can we remove the old alarm-related data from Foglight?
How are the retention policies for the alarms managed in Foglight ?
WORKAROUND (for pre 5.6.11 FMS versions)
NOTE: Alarm age for purge is only applied to historical alarms which have previously been cleared. The purge process will not remove current alarms.
