OpsMgrDW Grooming

After a while my demo environment with OpsMgr data warehouse (and loads of other stuff) needed some more space.

I haven’t looked in to grooming of the DW before. So as usual Google is a nice friend. 🙂

Stefan Stranger has a nice post with loads of grooming information.

So what I did was to download the dwdatarp tool.

First I ran it to see the current status

dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW

Looks like most of the datasets are stored 400 or 180 days… That is somewhat to much data for a demo environment.
I took the values and divided them by 4. Then ran the following to free up 75% of the database.

dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds Alert -a Raw -m 100
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds "Client Monitoring" -a Raw -m 8
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds "Client Monitoring" -a Daily -m 100
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds Configuration -a Raw -m 100
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds Event -a Raw -m 25
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds Performance -a Raw -m 45
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds Performance -a Hourly -m 100
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds Performance -a Daily -m 100
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds State -a Raw -m 45
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds State -a Hourly -m 100
dwdatarp.exe -s SNWSQL01 -d OperationsManagerDW -ds State -a Daily -m 100

OK… when you have a database full of free space you need to truncate it, but that’s another story…
