Unistall Opsview Monitor

Opsview Monitor and all of its associated modules can be uninstalled using the -u flag, as shown in the example below:

curl -L https://install.opsview.com | sudo bash -s -- -u

You will be asked to confirm, if you wish to remove Opsview Monitor's configuration, log files and so on. However, the Opsview Monitor databases will not be removed just in case you want to retain its data. Nevertheless, if you do wish to remove the Opsview Monitor databases, you can use the commands as shown in the example below, as the MySQL root user:

DROP DATABASE opsview;
DROP DATABASE runtime;
DROP DATABASE odw;
DROP DATABASE dashboard;
DROP DATABASE jasperserver;

We do not recommend the use of the 'u flag to uninstall your Opsview Monitor software.

Uninstall Opsview Monitor Modules

Opsview Monitor modules can be uninstalled individually or as a group by using the -n flag, as we show in the example below. You will be prompted to confirm the 'uninstall' of each module, but any module specific database will not be removed just in case you want to retain its data:

curl -L https://install.opsview.com | sudo bash -s -- -n

Depending on what modules you have installed, you may also need to run the following commands as the MySQL root user:

DROP DATABASE notifications;
DROP DATABASE smsgateway;
