Our Autosys environment consists of a Development, Test, Acceptance, and Production environment. Our operators close all alarms in the Production but not in Acceptance, Development and Test environment. The Test, Development and Acceptance alarms grow tremendously.

Question: Is it possible to close and remove alarms by running a simple command?


In order to clear all alarms in a specific instance, connect to database and run the following command:

  delete from alarm where alarm_time<x

(Where x is the internal Autosys time)

You can obtain the Autosys time by running command 'time0':


$ time0
