Found large "Insight"-Database on our Server - how can I get rid of it? (Screenshot inside!)

Hello,

my Name is Daniel and I hope to geht some help from you guys here :-)

Here is a Screenshot of our Problem:
http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/1678/insightf.jpg

As you all can see, the DB takes up ~30 GB of the harddiskspace and there are only ~2,5 GB left for other things.

The word "insight" makes me think, all this data is stored by the Insight Manager or the Insight diagnostics, right?

Since we haven´t been using the Insight Manager anyway and we do need the 30 GB space, I´d like to stop this service or set the DB to a certain amount of MB or have a chance to clean out unneeded information. Either way: The size has to go down noticeable.

What do you think?

Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi

According to what I see in your screenshot, I can tell you that that this DB is an ICE db (Insight Control Environnement). It is at the same time an HP SIM db , for HP SIM is the central part of the ICE environnment.

If the HP SIM server is still up and if you are not using it, you may want to remove the application before scratching the DB.

if you are not using it, you can remove the db.

hope it helps

Hello guys,

sorry for my absence and thanks for your hints! The DBs size has been reduced by deleting the transactionprotocols.

Cheers
