remove data from kvstore



i'm trying to remove the data i have in kvstore collection.
im using this command :

splunk clean  kvstore  -app system -collection alerts_prod

im getting message that there is nothing to remove even though i see that there is

$clusterTime.clusterTime.$timestamp.i $clusterTime.clusterTime.$timestamp.t $clusterTime.signature.hash.$binary $clusterTime.signature.hash.$type $clusterTime.signature.keyId App Collection author avgObjSize capped count data dbsize eai:acl.can_list eai:acl.can_write eai:acl.modifiable eai:acl.owner eai:acl.perms.write eai:acl.removable eai:acl.sharing id indexSizes.UserAndKeyUniqueIndex indexSizes._id indexsize lastExtentSize nindexes ns numExtents ok operationTime.$timestamp.i operationTime.$timestamp.t paddingFactor paddingFactorNote published size splunk_server storageSize title totalIndexSize updated userFlags

Check if this collection is part of any other app. If yes remove collection for that app. If this doesn't work you can remove kvstore collection alerts_prod, restart splunk and add it again.

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool --debug collections list
