Description (partial)

The MSE supports a wIPS alert "ID 22 : wIPS Database Utilization". Currently there is no documentation of it; it needs to be included in the MSE Configuration Guide.

It is a pro-active message from the wIPS engine on the MSE alerting the sysadmin to fine tune the profiles wherever possible.

Here are some threshold info for the  wIPS DB utilization alarm:
1. AlarmRecord_Limit in wIPS adminconf file
                default is 6M.

2. Triggered if DB Alarm records > AlarmRecord_Limit * 75%
                It reports every 60 minutes if alarm records keep high.

3. Regular DB cleanup:
                wIPS cleans up the alarm record from DB when its report time is 30(Alarm_Ageout) days ago.

4. Force delete older records if alert is unattended:
If DB Alarm records > AlarmRecord_Limit * 95%, it trigger below ageout process:
                ageout alarm record day by day from DB until it < AlarmRecord_Limit * 70%
