trimming wtmps on 11iv2 host

I see where my wtmps is getting rather large in size. wtmp itself not near as much (one holds accounting info vs the other holds just login info, right?). Anyway  I need to trim WTMPS.  I see in SAM (routine tasks) that only WTMP is listed.

Best practice to trim WTMPS??!

Hopefully SAM will trim both.  After all wtmp is only vestigial, wtmps now has the info.

Using SAM to trim wtmp does not affect WTMPS. I had to save  WTMPS as WTMPS.old and starta  new WTMPS

Hopefully 11.31 and SMH is better.
