You may want to delete historical performance data if the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Archive process has timed out and data older than the Archive Policy still exists in the data store. You may also choose to manually delete historical performance data to free up the threads for regular monitoring that the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Archive process would occupy. Another reason to manually delete historical performance data is to shrink the size of the DataStore.
Once you know the oldest data sample, go to the Historical Data Purge Scripts page and download the MS SQL trim script you want to run i.e. Ad-hoc or Use Archive Settings.
|WARNING: All deleted data will be lost. Ensure that you complete a full data store backup before proceeding with a trim script.|
