Howto clear Mikrotik Log/History

No-log

Today I was in a requirement to clear the Mikrotik LOG window and clear all the commands from the Terminal console history dueto some security and privacy reason. Since I couldn’t found a simple command base method to clear LOG window, I followed a workaround and it worked like a charm.

CLEAR Mikrotik LOG WINDOW HISTORY [Jz]


/system logging action set memory memory-lines=1

It will delete all previous entries.


/system logging action set memory memory-lines=100

It will change it back to the default number of lines. or let it set to 1 , if you dont want any info, which is not recommended in any case 🙂

CLEAR Mikrotik TERMINAL CONSOLE HISTORY [Jz]

In newer version of mikrotik 6.x, you can clear console commands by using


console clear-history

Note: Sticking with newer firmware (but surely stable one) is always a Good idea so that you stay safe and secure with lots of new features 🙂

However I really wish that Mikrotik can add an “CLEAR ALL LOGS” button in the future 😉
