How do you purge the Message Center?

I have a Vertica cluster with the Management Console installed on a separate server (running 7.0.1 but upgraded from 6.x).
I have collected a large number of warning events over the life of this system and every time I come into Message Center I get a dialog box "More than 500 records found.  Returning first 500 matching records."
From the "Overview" tab there are ~200,000 warning messages in the "All" column.
If I use the "Select All" and then "Delete Msgs" buttons at the top of the Message Center it seems to only delete a hundred or so records at a time.
I would like to start fresh now that I have upgraded to 7.0.1 and purge all of the old messages.  Does anyone know how can I purge all of the old messages?

    I have the same question from another customer in California. Posted it here. If there is a way to relate the 2 posts that will be great.

    If it is possible for the environment, one easy way to reset the messages, is to remove the monitored clusters from the GUI display and then re-import them.
    The messages in the Message Center will only be those from the time of DB import.

    Assuming it is not feasable to remove the cluster and rejoin..

    Is there a true way to purge the message center and to stop it from collecting "info" alerts..
