IBM Tivoli Monitoring, Version 6.3

Converting short-term history files to delimited flat files

If you selected the option to store data to a data base, that option is mutually exclusive with running the file conversion programs described in this section. To use these conversion procedures, you must have specified Off for the Warehouse option in the History Collection Configuration window of the Tivoli® Enterprise Portal.

The conversion procedure empties the history accumulation files and must be performed periodically so that the history files do not take up needless amounts of disk space.
