Syntax

Detailed Description

The Set-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting cmdlet modifies database grooming settings for a management group. Database grooming automatically removes unnecessary data from the System Center 2012 – Operations Manager database in order to maintain performance.

You can specify how long, in days, to keep the following items:

-- Resolved alerts
-- Availability history
-- Event data
-- Task history
-- Maintenance mode history
-- Monitoring job data
-- Performance data
-- State change data

Use the Get-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting cmdlet to see the current values for these settings.

By default, this cmdlet uses the active persistent connection to a management group. Use the SCSession parameter to specify a different persistent connection. You can create a temporary connection to a management group by using the ComputerName and Credential parameters. For more information, type Get-Help about_OpsMgr_Connections.
