This article explains what happens when a node is deleted.


  • All LEM versions
  • All Orion Module


  • When a node is deleted from the node list, the data for that node is not removed. It will be stored in the LEM database until it is eventually rolled off due to its age - so it's treated as any other of the events stored in LEM.
  • If a syslog node is removed, it is only removed from the node list. If another log from that device is received, the node will be re-entered into the node list. 
  • If an agent node is removed, the connection certificates will be deleted and the agent may need to be reset on the agent machine.
  • Reports will show no data because it cannot relate the report to the deleted node id.
