Not only do we have the standard .trc files there are now .trm files and probably various other things.

Maybe I am missing some basic concept like some parameter to set or utility to use so that 11g databases will clean out and delete stuff after a certain date in the diag structure.

Or perhaps oracle has that on their to-do list but hasn't gotten around to that yet.

The idea of collecting and keeping all the diagnostic stuff around together is fine if only there is some method behind the madness of getting rid of stuff that you don't want anymore.

Ideas or clarification or working 11g linux scripts would be appreciated! Even some words of warning about things not to get rid of are fine.
