Use case

Clear an error log

In many instances, a running process may collect a running accumulation of error or warning messages which are only sent on a periodic bases. For example a system administrator might want to receive all errors for a given day at the start of the next day. Once those accumulated messages have been sent, they do not need to be retained. In this case, using "Remove Data" allows the process to clear the message accumulator. The next time an error or warning message occurs, the variable will be recreated.
