If you do not need to keep historical configuration files and want to improve database performance, you can automate the removal of unnecessary configuration files. If your database is not stored on a high performance SQL Server, or is running on a locally installed instance of SQL Server Express, ensure you regularly purge unused config history.

  1. Click My Dashboards > Configs > Jobs.
  2. Click Create New Job.
  3. Name the job, and then select Purge Old Configs from Database from Job Type.
  4. Select the Schedule Type. If you are creating an Advanced schedule, use the five fields to create an appropriate cron expression.
  5. Add a comment if this job relates to a business rule, and click Next.
  6. Select the nodes to target with this job, and click Next.
  7. Select a Save option.
  8. Select an email notification option, and click Next. If you click Email Results, the default settings are populated. These settings can be overridden in each job.
  9. Select a Purge Configs option, and then click Next.
  10. Review the settings for the job, and click Finish.
