Configure device data retention defaults
Set the amount of time SolarWinds N-central retains device notes and discovery job data. SolarWinds N-central keeps this information for a default of 100 days, in case you need to refer to it. You can change the default to a short period of time for better data management and conserving disk space, or retain for a longer time to meet corporate policies.
- Click Administration > Defaults > Data Retention.
- Set the amount of time that device notes and job discovery information is retained.
- Select Propagate to distribute the default Device Notes data retention settings to devices. Otherwise, the changes you make will only apply to new devices.
- Click Save.
The device data properties are applied to new devices that are added to SolarWinds N-central. If you selected Propagate, the changes are applied to the devices currently managed by SolarWinds N-central.
