How can the InControl server database be cleaned up and also have its size on disk reduced?
The InControl database contains configuration history, domains etc. Over time, the database will grow following configuration check-ins and other operations.
Automatic cleanup of the database can be enabled by opening the “InControl Server Settings” interface, selecting “Database” and enabling the “AutoCleanDatabase” option. This will cause an automatic database cleanup to occur when the server is started and then periodically during operation.
In addition, the following cleanup options can be set:
This will remove any configurations older than the specified number of days during cleanup.
When a cleanup runs, if there are more than this number of configurations in the history for a given firewall then the excess will be deleted for that firewall.
Important note about reducing disk usage:
All the server options covered in this article are described in more depth in the separate “InControl Administration Guide” publication.
