We currently have MARS archiving every 10 days to an NFS mount that is configured in the web interface.
Our quesition essentially is if we didn't do the archive at all, what would be the expected retention level of the data inside the appliance. This of course depends on how much data is being sent, but we are curious as to whether there is a fixed timeframe that MARS automatically removes old data or at least begins to overwrite.
The only other thing we heard is that when an archive is executed to the NFS mount, that data is then removed from the database.
We are running MARS-100 (750GB), version 4.3.5 (2838).
Thanks for any help that can be provided!!!
