Increasing DB retention RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there anyway to configure the ATA center or mongo to increase the data retention?
    We have a tonne of extra capacity so we'd like to have it to hold a bit more info.

    Regards,
    Jon

  • Hello Jon,

    It's not necessary to increase DB retention. 

    The oldest collection of data will not be deleted, unless the free space reaches a minimum of either 20% or 100GB.

    Therefore, you should always make sure that the disk the database resides on has at least 20% of free space.

    Best regards,

  • Dear Andy,

    did you men 20% of the volume the DB is installed? I don't quite get this 100GB static value.

    Thanks

  • Hello Jon,

    Yes, the volume the DB installed should has at lease 20% of free space.
