    Statistics Clean Up

    Is there a utility for cleaning old Statistics data from our MetaLib installation?

    As of MetaLib Version 3.13, April Service Pack 168, a new utility has been introduced for cleaning/deleting old statistics data.
    It is recommended to use this utility to boost performance of your system.
    ****** Important:*** This utility should be applied only after backing up the statistics data and generating all the reports you require for future reference.

    To activate the utility, go to the MetaLib server and enter following commands:

    >>dlib vir00
    >>util x

    The system will prompt to enter the number of months you wish to retain in the system.
    Beyond the number of months you specify, all older statistics data will be removed from the system.

    Note that this utility deletes the user information and statistics - once this is done the only way to get them back is to restore them from a backup. Restoring from a backup will fully replace all data in the current installation - new data generated since running Util X-10 will be lost.
