Garbage Collector for Matrix42 Workspace Management


The engine Garbage Collector is a cyclicly running background service that deletes objects (e.g. Computers, Monitors and Incidents) based on user-defined deletion criteria. The list of objects to be deleted is determined dynamically via a configuration file. For example, a filter can be defined to delete all computers with the status ‘inactive’ or to delete all incidents which are older than 1 year.

Schedule all delition processes by various attributes.

Advantages are:

  • Runs cyclic in the background
  • Continuous clean up of database
  • Very helpful in the context of bulk operations
  • Filter configuration with ASQL
  • Reduced database size
