Failed Data, Data Base is getting too Large

Hi All,

I've been looking for a place to limit or clean up the failed data DB. I see in under CMC.aplications>information steward there are a few setting. I don't see where there is anything to cleanup the failed data.

I have over 670 views and 17 gig of space being used. I'm looking for something that will clean this up from time to time.

In the past I thought there was a setting you could set.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

BW

    If you upgrade to IS SP7, you can use the new Clean Up Failed Data utility.

    Managed failed data repositories

    Your failed data repositories can become very large and may periodically require some maintenance to keep them working efficiently. Additionally, when source data (table or view) is re-imported after structural changes have been made, structural inconsistencies in the failed data repository can cause rule tasks to fail. The software provides the following options to help you manage the size and content of your failed data repositories:

    ● The Clean Up Failed Data utility in the Central Management Console (CMC) cleans up old and obsolete failed data from all of your failed data connections.

    ● The Delete Failed Data and Run option in the Tasks tab of Data Insight cleans up data structure inconsistencies in your repository when a rule task fails.

    ● The Delete Failed Data and Run option in the task status page in the Central Management Console (CMC) deletes data structure inconsistencies in your repository when a rule task fails.

    For more information about managing the failed data repository, see the User Guide.

    A feature was added to 4.2 SP6 or SP7 that allows you to clean this up.

    I think the only other option would be to run DELETE commands on the database failed records tables.
