Database maintenance performs a series of data summarizations that help you optimize the size of your Orion Platform database. Data summarization consists of gathering all the collected network data for a defined period of time, calculating statistics from the data, and then discarding the data itself while retaining the statistics. By regularly running database maintenance, you can realize significant space savings and performance improvements.

Database maintenance can either be run directly from the Start menu, or scheduled for a set Archive Time and initiated from the Polling Settings view in the Orion Web Console. In either case, once started, database maintenance normally proceeds without further attention. For more information about setting the Archive Time for database maintenance on the Polling Settings view, see Orion Platform polling settings. The following procedure provides the steps to perform Database Maintenance:

Administrative privileges are required to run Database Maintenance.

  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWindsOrion > Advanced Features > Database Maintenance.
  2. Then click Start.
