How to delete tons of log quickly?

Jump to solution

Hi,

A rule on Threat Prevention triggerred millions of events ("report only" events). Now I want to delete them quickly. When I removed them on McAfee ePO, it often hanged or it was very slow.

Is there any alternative to do it?

I already figured out how to do it: make a custom query with specific threat name, then select all events and delete all.

Hello sanba06c,

You can follow below KB articles which would help you delete the events directly from the database, either based on retention period or event ID basis which would be easier in an ideal situation.
