So I have no problem setting up the history/recorder, but having a look into my database it is filled with call_service and service_executed events (even after excluding all entities).
With my setup, an automation fires off when an MQTT message is recieved. This automation fires off another MQTT message and this happens every second or two, so the call_service/service_executed events add up very quickly.
RobDYI seems to have had the same problem and ran a script to delete these (superfluous?) database records here, but the whole script thing is beyond me without some sort of guide.
Is there any way to disable the recording of these events into the database? I’m running the latest version with hass.io.
