repmgr cluster cleanup


repmgr cluster cleanup -- purge monitoring history


Purges monitoring history from the repmgr.monitoring_history table to prevent excessive table growth.

By default all data will be removed; Use the -k/--keep-history option to specify the number of days of monitoring history to retain.

This command can be executed manually or as a cronjob.


This command requires a valid repmgr.conf file for the node on which it is executed; no additional arguments are required.


Monitoring history will only be written if repmgrd is active, and monitoring_history is set to true in repmgr.conf.

Event notifications

A cluster_cleanup event notification will be generated.
