How to perform a database cleanup on Windows?

New Member

Looking in the community, unfortunately I was confused and found only for Linux versions. And I installed it in the Windows version.

Can you tell me how to perform the database cleaning process?
I would like to clear all the device collection logs.

I'm running tests with the tool between my devices so I can deploy it in the organization. For this, I would like to collect on other devices.

If you need to clean an index you can use the splunk clean eventdata -index <index_name> command.

Basically, run command prompt as administrator, and run "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\splunk.exe clean eventdata clean eventdata -index <index_name>. THis will ask for admin credentials.
