What is the data purge time?



I know how to configure the data purging limit. But I would like to ask, when PRTG will cleanup data? Realtime or Daily?

configuration log prtg

Hi Jimmy,

Quick example: If you set your purging limit to 30 days, you'll have 30 days of history from today on. Day 31 will be empty :) So it's on a daily basis, yes.
