Our cluster node is using about twice the amount of diskspace as our primary node. Should the data retention logs automatically apply to both nodes?

Primary node: C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\Monitoring Database 30 GB

Secondary node: 60 GB

Hello,

Thank you for the KB-Post. The used space should be very similar. Is the NTFS-Compression enabled by any chance on the Master Node?
Just to make sure, please compare the Data Purging Limits on both nodes. Are they the same?

best regards.

We are noticing the same on our setup, but it turned out to be Windows Server > Data Deduplication enabled on the primary - not NTFS compression. On the plus side, the PRTG folder is getting 70% deupe!
