This topic details the default schedule for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager maintenance tasks.
By default, Operations Manager performs maintenance tasks daily to maintain optimal performance of the Operations Manager database. These maintenance tasks are defined as system rules in the Operations Manager management pack.
The following table displays the maintenance tasks and the time they are scheduled to run:
Discovery Data Grooming
A rule that deletes aged discovery data from the Operations Manager database.
Every day at 2 AM
Partition and Grooming
A rule that runs workflows to partition and deletes aged data from the Operations Manager database.
Every day at 12 AM
Detect and Fix Object Space Inconsistencies
A rule that repairs data block corruption in database schema objects.
Every 30 minutes
Alert Auto Resolve Execute All
A rule that automatically resolves active alerts after a period of time.
Every day at 4 AM

In the Operations console, click Authoring.
Under Authoring, expand Management Pack Objects, and then click Rules.
In the Rules pane, change the scope of management pack objects by clicking Scope.
In the Scope Management Pack Objects by target(s) dialog box, click Clear All.
