Commands for clearing logs

You can use the omconfig system or omconfig servermodule command to clear the following logs: the alert log, command log, and hardware or ESM log.

To clear the contents of the alert log, type:
omconfig system alertlog action=clear
omconfig servermodule alertlog action=clear
  • NOTE: Entering an invalid RAC user name may prevent the command log from displaying. Clearing the command log resolves this condition.
To clear the contents of the command log, type:
omconfig system cmdlog action=clear
omconfig servermodule cmdlog action=clear
To clear the contents of the ESM log, type:
omconfig system esmlog action=clear
omconfig servermodule esmlog action=clear
  • NOTE: For more information about alert messages, see the OpenManage Server Administrator Messages Reference Guide at
