HADB history files record all database operations and error messages. HADB appends to the end of existing history files, so the files grow over time. To save disk space and prevent files from getting too large, periodically clear and archive history files.
The command syntax is:
hadbm clearhistory [--saveto=path] [dbname] [--adminpassword=password | --adminpasswordfile=file] [--agent=maurl]
The dbname operand specifies the database name. The default is hadb.
Use the --saveto option (short form -o) to specify the directory in which to store the old history files. This directory must have appropriate write permissions. See General Options for a description of other command options.
For more information, see hadbm-clearhistory(1).
The --historypath option of the hadbm create command determines the location of the history files. The names of the history files are of the format dbname.out. nodeno. For information on hadbm create, see Creating a Database
Each message in the history file contains the following information:
The abbreviated name of the HADB process that produced the message.
The type of message:
INF - general information
WRN - warnings
ERR - errors
DBG - debug information
A timestamp. The time is obtained from the host machine system clock.
The service set changes occurring in the system when a node stops or starts.
Messages about resource shortages contain the string “HIGH LOAD.”
