Qlik logging service database urgently needs to be reduced in size

Possible cause  

The database admin has identified an immediate need to clear space.

Proposed action  

The database admin can use the manual purge option offered through the Qlik Logging Service.

  1. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges.

  2. Go to C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Logging.

  3. Run Qlik.Logging.Service.exe archive --cutoff X --hours (where X is the number of hours).

  4. Run Qlik.Logging.Service.exe purge --cutoff X --hours (where X is the number of hours).

  5. If presented with a message stating the system is too busy, retry the command.

  6. If the second try generates the same message, try again at a less busy time on the server.

  7. Restart the Qlik Logging Service.
