Prime Infrastructure 3.5 - Extremely large number of minor rogue ap alarms.

Hey Gang,

 I just build out a new PI 3.5 system and the amount of minor ap alarms for Unclassified Rogue AP Detected is just unreal. I am talking up to 6,000 or more per day. We have a large environment with multiple locations so it gets crazy clearing them.

 

I was out on vacation and came back to 50,000.

 

Is there a way to clear them from the CLI or shell?

 

Thanks

 - From info's like the one below from the Prime manual(s) you at least be able to define a very short retention period for those alerts (for starters) :

 

 

Step 1

Choose Administration > Settings > System Settings > Alarms and Events > Alarms and Events.

Step 2

Modify the Alarm and Event Cleanup Options:

  • Delete active and cleared alarms after—Enter the number of days after which active and cleared alarms are deleted.
  • Delete cleared security alarms after—Enter the number of days after which Security, Rogue AP, and Adhoc Rogue alarms are deleted.
  • Delete cleared non-security alarms after—Enter the number of days after which non-security alarms are deleted. Non-security alarms include all alarms that do not fall under the Security, Rogue AP, or Adhoc Rogue categories.
  • Delete all events after—Enter the number of days after which all the events are deleted.
  • Max Number of Events to Keep—Enter the number of events that needs to be maintained in the database.

Got the same issue since around PI 3.5 (oldest Rogue AP Minor I have is from April). This behavior somewhen changed, I didn't had that in the past.
I had the "Delete cleared security alarms after" already on 30 days and the "Delete cleared non-security alarms after" on 7 days. So I shouldn't have any events from April...
PI is running all the latest patches (checked today again).
