Clear DB


Before erasing databases, make sure that you have access to a recent backup!


After clearing the DB, we highly recommend rebooting the IP Fabric appliance. It is especially important when you had issues with a low amount of available RAM and a lot of memory data was moved to the disk swap.

In rare cases, it may be necessary to delete and recreate the IP Fabric database. Go to¬†Settings¬†→ System → Backup & Maintenance and click Clear DB.

When running Clear DB, all loaded snapshots are automatically unloaded, and the database recreated.
