Vrops 6.6.1 Data Retention

Jump to solution

I have set vrops data retention to the lowest values i can with the exception that i would only have 1 month of metric data but that does not seem to be the case below are my global settings and a cpu metric for one of the hosts. Is there a settings file i need to modify or cant this be done

There are two global settings for data retention of metrics.

- Time Series Data Retention

- Additional Time Series Retention

You have configured both settings to 1 month. This will provide you with 2 months of data retention. If you only want 1 month of data retention, you could configure the 'Additional Time Series Retention' setting to '0'.

The 'Additional Time Series Retention' global setting is explained in detail in this post, vXpress: Part 9 - Using data roll-ups for longer retention period in vROps 6.6
