The command lists the number of instances marked for deletion from top 20 PATROL Agents when <numagents> is not specified.
Where :
              <numagents>          Enter the string 'all' or a number.
                                   Enter the string 'all' to list the instances marked for deletion from all the PATROL Agents.
                                   Enter a number to list the instances marked for deletion from the specified number of PATROL Agents.


pw  mfdinst  list -patrolagentid <patrolAgentId>


The command lists the number of instances marked for deletion from a single PATROL Agent.
Where :
              -patrolagentid       is the PATROL Agent Id and must be greater than 10000.


pw  mfdinst  delete -patrolagentid <patrolAgentId> || -motypeid <montiorTypeId>

The command deletes the instances marked for deletion from a single PATROL Agent or Monitor Type.

Where :
              -patrolagentid       is the PATROL Agent Id and must be greater than 10000.
              -motypeid            is the Monitor Type Id and must be greater than 500000.


Note :Run the 'pw  mfdinst  count [ <numagents> ]' (without the single quote marks) command to get the PATROL Agent Id.
      Run the 'pw  mfdinst  list -patrolagentid <patrolAgentId>' (without the single quote marks) command to get the Monitor Type Id.
