Types of data commonly included in cleanups

This topic discusses the various types of BMC Server Automation data that have the potential of filling up your database and are commonly included in cleanup jobs.

Historical data from BMC Server Automation jobs and other objects

The BMC Server Automation data that consumes the most database space and grows most rapidly is historical data from BMC Server Automation jobs and other objects. Historical data is removed by the Delete cleanupHistoricalData  command, which is called by the out-of-the-box cleanup job that BMC recommends that you run at least once a week. The exact object type to delete is specified as a variable of this command every time it runs.

The following table provides a summary of the various categories of historical data that you can delete in cleanup jobs:

Job data in the GUI

To help you understand the difference between the various types of job data, let's take a look at where each type of job data is displayed in the BMC Server Automation Console. The following figure shows the display of results for a job with multiple job runs.

Note the following elements:

  • Job run data in the tree structure that appears in the left-hand part of the results includes job scheduling data.
  • Job result data appears in the lower-level nodes of the tree structure and (mostly) in the tabular display on the right.
  • Job run event data appears when you select the Show Log option for a job run.
  • The audit trail for the job appears in the bottom left corner of the console.

Each type of data can be cleaned up separately. For example, you can delete old job run event data (job log messages) while still keeping job run schedules and results. In fact, this happens when job run event data is deleted based on a default retention period of 14 days, while job result data is deleted based on a job property that you set to the recommended retention period of 30 days. The following figure shows such a case, where job result data is present but job log messages have been cleaned up and are no longer present.  The job run is the gatekeeper object - if it is soft-deleted, none of the other data will be visible in the GUI.

Shared objects 

Another type of BMC Server Automation data that can consume a large amount of database space is shared objects. This is the data that is shared across multiple modules like ACL policies, configuration objects, and file contents for Snapshot Jobs and Audit Jobs. These shared objects accumulate rapidly especially if you run inventory snapshots (or any other environment-wide Snapshot Jobs or Audit Jobs) on a frequent basis.

Shared objects are removed from the database by the Delete hardDeleteAllSharedObjects command, which is called by the out-of-the-box cleanup job that BMC recommends that you run at least once a week.

Shared objects are cleaned up from the following database tables:

BL_ACL

BL_ACL_AGG_AUTH

BL_VALUESBlValueReferences to generic model objects. These are internal values generated by BMC Server Automation, such as values created for specific instances of a property class or a Depot object.

Data on BMC Server Automation components

Data cleanup further involves the deletion of old data from several components of the BMC Server Automation environment. The following table provides a summary of the BMC Server Automation components for which cleanup commands are available, along with details about the data that is deleted and recommendations for how often to run these commands.

ComponentBLCLI commandDetails
Database

 Delete cleanupDatabase

Deletes objects that have been previously marked for deletion (that is, objects that have been soft deleted), whether by deletion through the BMC Server Automation Console or by executing a retention policy for old data.

The cleanupDatabase command is called by the out-of-the-box cleanup job, when run in TYPICAL mode or in CLEAN_DB mode. BMC recommends cleaning the database at least once a week.

Note: Certain objects in the database are not deleted due to potential object dependencies. The cleanup process deletes all top-level model objects of the classes listed in the hk_allowed_classes database table, as well as all their child classes (which are not listed in this table). BMC recommends that you do NOT modify the contents of the hk_allowed_classes table.

The following table lists the database tables that are cleaned up by the cleanupDatabase command, along with the top-level classes that each table is associated with. In many cases, database tables are associated with multiple classes. During cleanup, actions are recorded in the blcli.log file according to these classes.

File Server

Delete cleanupFileServer  

Deletes data that is no longer needed in the file server, including unused files from the file server and from temporary file storage on the Application Server. This data is stored in the FILE_LOCATION table.

Before running the file server cleanup, ensure that the database cleanup (the cleanupDatabase command) has completed. In this way, you first remove objects from the database, and then you remove the actual underlying file system objects from the file server. 

The cleanupFileServer command is called by the out-of-the-box cleanup job, when run in TYPICAL mode or in CLEAN_FS mode. BMC recommends cleaning the file server at least once a week.

Application Servers

Delete cleanupAllAppServerCaches
and Delete cleanupAppServerCache

Deletes old temporary files stored in the cache on all Application Servers (the cleanupAllAppServerCaches command) or on a specific Application Server (the cleanupAppServerCache command), provided that the Application Servers are up and running (and accessible).

Cleanup of Application Servers is not included in TYPICAL mode of the out-of-the-box cleanup job. Instead, these commands are called when you run the cleanup job in CLEAN_ALL_AS or CLEAN_AS mode, respectively.

The recommended frequency for Application Server cleanup can vary, depending on your environment. For example, in the example of a standard weekly cleanup plan Application Server cleanup is planned to run on a monthly basis, and in the example cleanup plan for large operational environments Application Server cleanup is planned to run on a daily basis.

RSCD Agent

Delete cleanupAgent

Deletes old temporary files on a target server (agent). This includes old files that were created by Deploy Jobs in the Transactions directory (especially rollback files) and in the Staging directory.

 Click here for more information about these directories...

The Transactions directory is either rscdInstallDirectory/Transactions or as specified by the server's TRANSACTIONS_DIR property (see Configuring the location of the transactions directory). Within the Transactions directory, the contents of the following directories are not touched during cleanup: mnt, locks, database, events, and logs.

The Staging directory is specified by the server's STAGING_DIR property.  

Cleanup of RSCD agents is not included in TYPICAL mode of the out-of-the-box cleanup job. Instead, this command is called when you run the cleanup job in CLEAN_AGENT mode. BMC recommends cleaning the RSCD Agents at least once a month. For best results, keep agent cleanup separate from database cleanup (for example, do not include these two types of cleanup jobs in one batch job).

Repeater Server

Delete cleanupRepeater

Deletes old files from the staging directory of a repeater server.

Cleanup of the repeater server is not included in TYPICAL mode of the out-of-the-box cleanup job. Instead, this command is called when you run the cleanup job in CLEAN_REPEATER mode. BMC recommends cleaning the repeater server at least once a month. For best results, keep the cleanup of the repeater server separate from database cleanup (for example, do not include these two types of cleanup jobs in one batch job).
