Create Diagnostic Data Retirement Policies

A diagnostic data retirement policy specifies when records will be removed from specific archives in the diagnostic data store, based on their age.

To create a age-based diagnostic retirement policy:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane, expand Diagnostics and select Archives.
  3. On the Summary of Diagnostic Archives page, click the name of the server for which you want to create diagnostic archive retirement policies.
  4. On the Setting for [Server Name] page, under Data Retirement Policies, click New.
  5. On the Create a Data Retirement Policy page, specify the details of the policy. See Configuration Options.
  6. If you want to enable the retirement policy immediately, select the Enabled check box.

    Note: Data retirement for the server instance must be enabled for individual data retirement policies to be enabled. See Configure diagnostic archives.

  7. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
