Enable a way to clean / refresh xml-names cache via manual / rest / soma

- To have a mechanism wether is manual with a CLI command or via SOMA/REST to clean / refresh the xml-names cache when the limit is reached.

- It is prefreably that we can set this limit to decide if this value is 50% or 60% or 70% for instance.

This is to avoid restarts when the workload is high and the gargabe collection doesn't have time to clean because all the XMLNames are used.

    You can set qcode-warn value in throttle settings via CLI, WebGUI, ..., here with CLI (default is 10% free, earliest start is 65% free or 35% used):
    idg# co

    Global mode

    idg(config)# throttle

    Modify Throttle Settings configuration

    idg(config throttle)# qcode-warn

    Usage: qcode-warn <percent>

    idg(config throttle)# show

    admin-state enabled

    memory-throttle 20 %

    memory-terminate 5 %

    temp-fs-throttle 0 %

    temp-fs-terminate 0 %

    qcode-warn 50 %

    timeout 30 seconds

    status-log off

    status-loglevel debug

    sensors-log on

    backlog-size 0

    backlog-timeout 30 seconds

    idg(config throttle)#

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you very much for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. Apologies for any confusion, you can use the "show xml-names-status" command to see usage so that will help you tune the warn-threshold parameter which can be set by "qcode-warn" command. When the warn-threshold is reached, the DataPower writes an alert to the log. But before that, it will trigger a clean up first. Therefore, the “warn threshold level” parameter also sets a threshold to begin the refresh or clean up XML Names short of the warning level. In other words setting this level will affect when cleanup is triggered. So, in summary the product in its current form has the mechanism of what is being asked for here.
