Root CauseA defect or configuration issue in the operating environment
At some point in the past the PegaAES agent was not running properly. Alert data accumulated so that normal processing could not take place.
The number of alerts in the DATA.pegaam_alert table had millions of rows. Some as old as 6 months. The retention configured in the AES settings was 14 days.
ResolutionIn the database tool of preference delete rows month by month from DATA.pegaam_alert until there are only alerts left with pxCreateDatetime less than 14 days ago.
If exceptions are also not properly groomed then repeat that process with DATA.pegaam_exception.
