    Need for cleanupHistoricalData if using cleanupDatabase?

    Douglas Smith

      Hi folks,

      we are on BL 8.1sp4 and have looked at vairous "best" practices for performing database clean up.


      I see many times the recommendation to run the "cleanupHistoricalData" commands as well as the cleanupDatabase command once a week.


      My question is, do we really need to issue the "cleanupHistoricalData" commands if we are using the "cleanupDatabase"?


      The 8.1 administrators guide indicates the following:


      Cleaning up historical data


      As part of its operation, the database clean-up utility (cleanupDatabase) cleans up

      istorical data from the database.
