Yes, run 'engine-setup --reconfigure-dwh-scale'.

You can also manually change [1] to whatever specific values you want.
I don't see this documented on the ovirt site, you can use RHV docs.

[1] /etc/ovirt-engine-dwh/ovirt-engine-dwhd.conf.d/10-setup-scale.conf

I don't think we have this documented. It's similar to [2] though.

We have [3] open to do this properly one day.

You can try something like this:

1. Stop dwhd
2. rm /etc/ovirt-engine-dwh/ovirt-engine-dwhd.conf.d/10-setup*.conf
3. Connect with psql as user postgres and then:
> drop database ovirt_engine_history
> drop user ovirt_engine_history
4. engine-setup

I didn't try this myself.
