The myarmdelete command can be used in many ways. If you want to delete all query transaction measurements of our CDDB example Server, use the following command:

myarmdelete -t "PyCDDB:CDDB-Query"

and the following command for the applications

myarmdelete -a PyCDDB

If you want to clean up your whole database use

myarmdelete --defs --all

deleting all (--all) instances as well as all definitions (--defs).
