SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

The servicelog_manage command performs administrative actions on the system servicelog. It is used primarily to purge events, repair actions, and notifications from the database.

OPTIONS

--status
Display counts for each type of entry in the servicelog. This is similar to the information displayed by the servicelog(8) command when it's invoked with no options.
--truncate {events|notify}
Delete all events (including repair actions) or all notifications. WARNING: Make sure you really want to do this!
--clean
Purge older entries. By default, the following events will be deleted: all repaired serviceable events, all repair actions older than 60 days, all informational (non-serviceable) events older than 60 days, and all events older than one year. The 60-day period may be modified with the --age option.
--age=days
Change the 60-day default for --clean to some other value, in days.
--force
Don't prompt the user for verification when the --truncate option is used. Use with caution!
--help
Display a help message.
