Ability to prune/delete Autonomic Symptoms, Actions, and Utility History table data

There is currently no supported process that will allow a user to cleanup all or selected rows in the Symptoms, Actions, and Utility History tables in the DB2 Autonomics Director for z/OS database DYXDB. These tables are populated by the DB2 Autonomics framework as autonomic work is generated and/or executed.

Over time, these tables can easily have thousands of rows inserted into them. It is thus desirable to be able to prune them periodically.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? DBA
How should it work?

Most likely, a batch utility program could be provided for the user to run on a periodic basis to delete old/aged records from the DYXDB tables.  The utility would delete records based on a date or an age.

Idea Priority Low
Priority Justification Need ability to manage these tables in a supported manner.
