Reset Skype for Business Statistics Manager (StatsMan) history


You have a brand new or existing deployment of Skype for Business Statistics Manager. Your graph shows some weird old statistics (few days/weeks ago) as well as recent statistics (by default: 24 hours old) in a single chart.

Don't know yet. Could be related to Open Source of Redis in-memory caching system.


Reset statistics completely (--age:0) or to 24 hours old.
1. Run as Administrator "cmd" on server where SfB Statistics Manager Listener is installed:
2. Run either:

>"C:\Program Files\Skype for Business Server StatsMan Listener\PerfAgentStorageManager.exe" --redis:localhost --action:cleanup --age:0


>"C:\Program Files\Skype for Business Server StatsMan Listener\PerfAgentStorageManager.exe" --redis:localhost --action:cleanup --age:24

Using age: 1.00:00:00
FillNameCacheAsync of 6,889 counters took 180ms
GetLastWriteTimesAsync of 6,889 counters took 56ms
Scanned through 7,389 redis keys in 79ms and found 36 that should be deleted.
36 counters, 0 hosts, 36 storage keys, haven't been written to in 6.00:00:00
Do you want to remove the above hosts,36 counters and 36 storage keys? Y|[N]:y
Removed: 36 keys in 29ms
BulkDereferenceCounters: Attempting to dereference 36 storage keys
BulkDereferenceCounters: Deleted 36 last write time entries in 10ms
BulkDereferenceCounters: Removed 36 storage key entries from set in 1ms

Deleted 0 server infos.

I got normal graph after clearing history.

    updateServerInfo : Need --redis : Must provide --file or (--hostname and one or more --population options), --file should be in the format of getServerInfo output
                     : optional --noPrompt (will automatically do it without asking)
                     : optional --disableUpdate (will do adds only)
                     : optional --debug will show extra output
                     : The following shard scheme docs are only for multi-azure storage account setups:
                     : optional --shardScheme=none (to disable updating shard assignement for new servers)
                     : optional --shardScheme=<scheme>
                     :          <scheme> is one or more population matches separated by comma.
                     :          The default is Pool_,Site_ and it is recommended to not change this.
                     :          This will look at each new server's populations and try to match (start with) with a
                     :          scheme component then it will assign to that populations shard if it exists.
                     :          So for the default scheme it will look for the servers Pool shard, if that doesn't exist
                     :          then it will look for the servers Site shard, if that doesn't exist it will just stay as

    getServerInfo : Need --redis : optional --uri for the location to upload to, Default is redishash:///_ServerInfo
                  : optional --file will output the xml for edit
                  : optional --mode=command will output the information with the command line options for PerfAgentStorageManager
                  : optional one or more --population will get only the servers in one of those populations

    getRedirectCandidates : Need --redis, default is to find populations with a single server where the name of the server is the last part of the population
                  : optional --mode=<current>, current will retrieve the current list of configured redirected populations
                  : optional --file=filename.csv will output a file that can be used with --action=updateRedirectCandidates
                  : example: Pool_mySEserverFE01 server=mySEServerFE01

    getShardInfo : Need --redis.
                : Optional: One or more modes
                : --mode=verbose to output every assignment
                : --mode=password to see the configured password (careful!)
                : --mode=history to see the history of all shard assignments (assumes --mode=verbose)

    updateShardAssignments : Need --redis and one or more --population or a single --hostname and --mode=specific or --mode=population and --value
                : --value=# the number of the shard to assign them to
                : mode=specific means assign that population or host to the shard
                : mode=population means assign the population(s) to the shard and all of the servers in all populations given
                : mode=correction (be careful with this) means update any shard assignement that matches -value=shardid and -match=tableID (see -a=getshardinfo -verbose)
                : this is used when a mistake in timing was made and the shard assignement hasn't been used yet and this will update to the next
                :if you get this wrong and use it on something that is in use, the data will be missing
and not easily recovered
                : The assignment won't switch until the next 12 hour period. Be careful that you assign far enough from daily 12 hour boundaries
                : Optional: if in --mode=population you can also add a --match=<population match> to also add any population to the shard for servers
                : in the given population. For example: --mode=population --population=Site_Blah --match=Pool_ this will add any Pool in has servers in that
                : site. It will ask you for each one unless you have --noPrompt

    updateAzureShard : Need --redis and --value=<shard ID> --azure=<accountName> --azurePassword=<azure key> --thumbprint=<password decryption certificate thumbprint>
