From the web interface, head to "Setup -> System Administration -> Core & Probes" (in previous versions: "System & Website"). You can then define purging limits from under the "Historic Data Purging" heading (under "Data Purging Limits" in previous versions).

When does the purging process actually take place? Can I force it to occur after changing the purging settings? If so, how?

Thanks.

Hello John,

within the next 24 hours the historical data are deleted. Unfortunately, to force this process is not possible, sorry.
