Message Center does not load

Sometimes when Traps and Syslog tables get too high, it prevents the Message Center from loading due to the amount of data it is trying to display.

In this scenario, we had over 5 million traps and 8.1 million syslog entries.



NPM version 12



Syslog and Trap tables have become too large.



  1. Open the Database Manager from the Orion server.
  2. Load your default database.
  3. Highlight and right-click your database and select 'New Query...'
  4. Enter the following query:

Truncate Table Syslog

Truncate Table Traps


Once these have been cleared, you should be able to open the Message Center successfully.
