Database Maintenance does not start automatically at the scheduled time.  

There should be > 10,000 files in C:\programdata\Solarwinds\Logs\Orion.          


  • All Core 2016.x modules


There are too many files in the directory for the logs to roll over.


  1. Open CMD as administrator.
  2. Run DEL /f /q /s C:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\*.log.
  3. Run DEL /f /q /s C:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\*.log.*.
