Data Retention

This page, accessible by clicking Data Retention on the UDT Settings page, enables you to configure UDT data retention settings.

Setting Description Default
History Retention The number of days for which port activity is retained. 30
Detailed Statics Retention The number of days after which detailed statistics are summarized into hourly statistics. 7
Hourly Statistics Retention The number of days after which hourly statistics are summarized into daily statistics. 30
Daily Statistics Retention The number of days after which daily statistics are deleted. 365

The minimum value you can set for each retention setting is 1 day, and the maximum is 5000 days.

SolarWinds recommends to set a lower value for Detailed Statics Retention and higher for Daily Statistics Retention. This reduces the database load and saves memory.
