Controlling event retention
By default, InfiniBox retains events for a long time.
If there is need to control how long events are retained, administrators can periodically delete old events.
event.delete retention="2020-04-27 10:00:00"
- This command deletes any event that occurred prior to 10 AM on April 27th 2020
Events must be retained for at least one year.
