Important Note: This knowledge document was written before APM 10.5 when this command option changed. If using APM 10.5 and later, first review TEC1663998 before reading this -- Does the Smartstor Tool remove_metric command behave differently in APM 10.5.x and later?)
SmartStor Tool Command : remove_metrics
Removes metrics matching the given regular expression. Use this tool to clean up metrics leaks and explosions.
Warning! Use the remove_metrics tool with caution. Since this tool deletes data, take care that you do not accidentally delete important data.
-dest -- Destination SmartStor directory.
-help -- Prints a help message.
-metrics -- Regular expression for metrics to remove.
-src -- Source SmartStor directory.
SmartStorTools.bat remove_metrics -dest <destination directory> -metrics <metrics to be removed> -src <source directory>
<EM_Home>\tools\SmartStorTools.bat remove_metrics -dest C:\SWDump\destination -metrics ".*Socket.*" -src <EM_Home>\data
When the command executes successfully, all the metrics except the socket metrics are present in the destination directory and the source directory has all the metrics intact.
SmartStorTools.sh remove_metrics -dest < destination directory> -metrics <metrics to be removed> -src <source directory>
