Re: /var/opt/mx output

According to Table 1 (on page 3) of this document, the directory they're in is supposed to contain HP Systems Insight Manager job result output files.

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00740520/c00740520.pdf

 

My first guess would be that each numbered directory corresponds to a single job or job type.

 

The document indicates that backing up this directory is "optional", so I guess nothing irreplaceable is lost if these files are deleted. However, you might have to re-run some SIM jobs before all the usual data is available in SIM after that.

I would not delete any files or sub-directories in this directory while SIM is running.

 

Another document gives a clue on how to manage the amount of job output files (page 4, "Job cleanup for large number of managed systems"):

http://h10018.www1.hp.com/wwsolutions/misc/hpsim-helpfiles/hpsim-largeEnvmnt-53.pdf

 

In short, the SIM menu Tasks and Logs -> View Task Results -> Customize -> Settings controls how long old task results are kept by SIM.
