Assuming I'm understanding you correctly (you want to clear the system
message buffer?) you shouldn't be able to do that while the system is
running. It's a security precaution. Maybe if you explained why you
wanted to do it, we'd be able to help.

It shows the contents of the system message buffer immediately after
the kernel boots.

It should be the contents of the system message buffer at the time of
the daily periodic(8) run.

It should be the previous day's dmesg.today file.
