Periodic ESM Maintenance Tasks

Jump to solution

Hi,

New to McAfee ESM 🙂

Does anyone created or can refer me (official documentation) to a "checklist" of recommended periodic (daily, weekly, monthly...) maintenance tasks in McAfee, minimizing system errors in advance? for example-

-Policy Editor - Performing General Rollout  (on all Devices)

-Triggered Alarms (keeping alarms table from overflowing)

-Etc.

Thank you 🙂

We will have a KB article created for this.

Some of the maintenance include the following:

1) Removing the old triggered alarms.

2) Removing older reports.

3) Creating a ESM Settings backup.

4) Creating a Full Data backup.

5) Removing the older Settings back up files.

6) Removing the older full back up files locally stored in the ESM.

7) Performing a dummy write and policy rollout.

8. Running Cron jobs to capture hardware faults, device health status, available disk space in the partitions like checking the index_hd and data_hd available space, swap memory, load average CPU utilization, RAM utilization  etc

9) Performing manual rules update if automatic rules update is not enabled.
