ACS Purging

Hi Everyone

ACS is set to purge data every day or at the end of the month, depending on settings. But can someone please explain what "purging data" means exactly. What information is actually deleted?

Thanks

Hi Haider,The Monitoring &

Hi Haider,

The Monitoring & Report Viewer database handles large volumes of data. When the database size becomes too large, it slows down all the processes. You do not need all the data all the time. Therefore, to efficiently manage data and to make good use of the disk space, you must back up your data regularly and purge unwanted data that uses up necessary disk space. Purging data deletes it from the database.

Hi, Under "Removal and backup

Hi,

 

Under "Removal and backup" configuration, you configure "Data Purging" and choose the "Maximum stored data period".

If you set the max stoerd data period to for examlpe 6 months, then, the logs data older than 6 months will be deleted.
