Services Config View - Data Retention Scheduler TabServices Config View - Data Retention Scheduler Tab
The Data Retention Scheduler tab appears in the Services Config view for the Network Decoder, Log Decoder, and Concentrator.
In the Data Retention Scheduler tab, you can define the criteria for removing database records from primary storage on Network Decoder, Log Decoder, and Concentrator services, and schedule the timing for checking the threshold.
Note: If additional customization is necessary, use the Scheduler under the Files tab in the Services Config view. For example, if you have storage available to save the RAW data versus the metadata, use Capacity as the threshold and to set different thresholds per database (metadata versus packet).

The following figure illustrates the parameters in the Data Retention Scheduler tab for a Concentrator.
The Data Retention Scheduler tab has sections to specify Threshold settings and Run settings. The following table lists the parameters supported for data retention configuration.
|Threshold||The threshold is based on the age of the data, the amount of time the data was stored or the date on which the data was stored. The date is from the database file, not from the actual session time.
|Run||The schedule for running the job that checks rollover criteria.
|Apply||Overwrites any previous schedule for this service and applies the new settings immediately.
Caution: After you apply these settings, when the threshold is met the system deletes the old data from the database and you can no longer access it.
|Reset||Resets the schedule to the last applied state.|
