    CA is not able to maintain the Smartstor database.SmartstorTools is not cleaning up anything. The size of the store is 40 GB even after prune option is used.

    I followed the guidelines CA Support gave me but nothing changed after 7 hours of operation.

    Just a waste of time.


    CA APM is not able to handle the workload in our environment.

    I'm asked to select metrics from a pool of millions of metrics. This is not a solution, it is a problem itself.


    I want to backup the current smartstor files and create a new one.

    What is the procedure for this?

    Hi Gokhan,


    I am 200 percent sure these tools are working and it removes the data. I usually run smartstor pruning on multiple environments on multiple times as well.

    Can you post the screenshots/steps here you tried? I will have a look and let you know what could have been wrong.


    As a tip, I am attaching the document created by Sergio for smartstor cleanup.

    Here is the document which I prepared for my use. Try this in test environment first if you are not sure about steps.


    Hope this gives a good clarity
