DaysToKeepMonitorEvents - System Parameter

The DaysToKeepMonitorEvents System Parameter determines how long the history for state changes on Resources should be kept in the Log Databases. Every time a Resource changes its evaluated state (for example goes from OK to Error) a Monitoring Event record is written and thereby persisted to active Log Databases.

We at Nodinite has set this value to 90 days (default proposition in the Install and Update Tool), you can override this according to your auditing policies. It is the Monitoring Service that periodically purges old records.

System Parameter Name Data Type Values/Example Comment
