pruneOldInstances

pruneOldInstances

Deletes workflow process data from the workflow database.
When the Data Integration Service runs a workflow, the workflow process writes process data to the workflow database. Over time, the quantity of process data in the database can adversely affect the startup performance of workflow processes. To delete the process data from the database, run the wfs pruneOldInstances command. You can configure the command to delete all of the process data in the workflow database. Or, you can delete the process data that the workflows generated during a time period that you specify.
The pruneOldInstances command deletes process data only. The command does not delete any data that a workflow instance or any object in the workflow reads or writes. Likewise, the command does not delete any workflow object metadata.
To delete the process data, you must have the Manage Service privilege on the domain.
The infacmd wfs pruneOldInstances command uses the following syntax:
pruneOldInstances <-DomainName|-dn> domain_name <-ServiceName|-sn> service_name <-UserName|-un> user_name <-Password|-pd> password [<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain] <-Days|-d> days [<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds]
The following table describes infacmd wfs pruneOldInstances options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-DomainName
-dn
domain_name
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
-ServiceName
-sn
service_name
Required. Name of the Data Integration Service running the workflow instance.
-UserName
-un
user_name
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
-Password
-pd
password
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
-SecurityDomain
-sdn
security_domain
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
-Days
-d
days
The time period for which the command deletes the process data.
To calculate the time period, the command subtracts the number of days that you specify from the date and time at which you run the command. The command deletes all process data that the workflow processes generated over the time period.
Enter a value from 0 through 24855. If you enter 0, the command deletes all process data in the workflow database.
-ResilienceTimeout
-re
timeout_period_in_seconds
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. You can set the resilience timeout period with the -re option or the environment variable INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT. If you set the resilience timeout period with both methods, the -re option takes precedence.
