Decreasing job database size on Dazel 3.3

On Dazel 3.3 job databases tend to grow very large, sometimes up to 200 or 300 MB per JQM. Stopping or starting the JQM won't solve this problem; you'll have to recreate the JQM:

Stop the JQM:

# stop_server jqm
Delete the JQM:
# config_server -d jqm
Don't worry about the delivery pathways, the CM will still hold their configurations.

Recreate the JQM:
# config_server -t JQM jqm
If you have a special start order for the JQM, set it now:
# config_server -u -x"server-start-order 700" jqm
This will bring back the job database to approximately 400 KB.
