Description

The Set-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting cmdlet modifies database grooming settings for a management group. Database grooming automatically removes unnecessary data from the System Center 2016 - Operations Manager database in order to maintain performance.

You can specify how long, in days, to keep the following items:

- Resolved alerts

  • Availability history
  • Event data
  • Task history
  • Maintenance mode history
  • Monitoring job data
  • Performance data
  • State change data

    Use the Get-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting cmdlet to see the current values for these settings.

    By default, this cmdlet uses the active persistent connection to a management group. Use the SCSession parameter to specify a different persistent connection. You can create a temporary connection to a management group by using the ComputerName and Credential parameters. For more information, type Get-Help about_OpsMgr_Connections.

Examples

Example 1: Set days to keep resolved alerts

PS C:\>Set-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting -AlertDaysToKeep 21

This command sets the number of days to keep resolved alerts to 21.

Example 2: Set days to keep availability history

PS C:\>Set-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting -AvailabilityHistoryDaysToKeep 10

This command sets the number of days to keep availability history to 10.
