I issued "show alert" command and the result showed me that I need to clean things up:

2011-04-23 18:28:38.255000 -04:00
Starting ORACLE instance (normal)

I executed "purge -age 1440 -type alert" but nothing happened. The records in the alert file are still there from April the 23d. My understanding is that this is supposed to purge from alert log all records older than 1440 minutes (1 day)? This does work for cores and traces.
