You may use any of the following when you are running out of NTA disk space:


  • Move your NTA Flow Storage Database to a larger disk. For more information, see Changing the Location of NTA Flow Storage Database.
  • Set a lower retention period for saving your flow data. 
    Note: The default retention period is set to 30 days. Consider the size of your NTA Flow Storage Database disk and the number of flows you need to collect. If you need help with calculating the retention period suitable for your environment, feel free to contact SolarWinds support.
  • Make some space on your disk by deleting old or unwanted files.
  • If you are using virtual machines, allocate more space to the machine hosting your NTA Flow Storage Database.
