Is it possible to increase the number of historic toplists available?



At present the system seems to store the last month/30days worth of toplists. Is it possible to increase this to allow more historic analysis (eg for legal requirements) - say up to 12 months. It seems that this should only impact on disk space requirements...

Alternatively a simple method of exporting them to (say) CSV files....

yes, with PRTG 8.2 and newer only the hard-disk is "effected" when storing toplists longer than the default of 30 days. The place to change this setting is "Setup"->"System Administration"->"System & Website"->"Data Purging Limits"->"Toplist Records".

best regards.
