I would like to clear the events/alerts in the Horizon View Administrator.
I do not want to wait until a timeout or scheduled purge.
How can I do this ?
AFAIK out of the box you cannot remove those events it stays in the database. May be some hack or some SQL cmds to delete those data inside the table
A feature request is the "need of hour" - Contact VMware | United States
View Events Database is different from Composer and Vcenter where Composer and Vcenter useful information but Events database have information for logon login disconnects it is safe to create a new Databaseas well for that.
There are 5 tables in the View_Events database
Those tables are separated into "current", "historical" and "Configuration" data.
This table is currently just responsible for versioning.
The contents are:
We can set the time period for which the events are stored in the events table that would be from admin Page
You can delete everything from the Historical Table using the Commands below
delete from dbo.event_data_historical
delete from dbo.event_historical
Be very careful when deleting records. You cannot undo this statement!
Hopefully that helps.
