Data Retention

In LIVCK, data retention refers to the duration for which incidents and related information are stored within the system. LIVCK provides an automatic cleanup feature to help manage the storage of incidents and ensure optimal performance. By default, incidents older than 60 days are deleted, but this duration can be adjusted based on your specific needs.

Automatic Cleanup

LIVCK includes an automatic cleanup mechanism to remove incidents that have exceeded the specified retention period. This feature helps maintain a manageable incident history and prevents unnecessary data accumulation. By regularly cleaning up older incidents, you can keep your LIVCK instance streamlined and efficient.

The default retention period for incidents in LIVCK is set to 60 days. However, you have the flexibility to modify this duration according to your preferences and requirements. If you need to adjust the retention period, you can access the LIVCK settings and configure the desired duration for incident retention.

It's important to strike a balance between retaining historical incident data and managing storage resources effectively. Consider factors such as server resources, available disk space, and any compliance requirements when determining the appropriate retention period for your LIVCK instance.

Finding the Best Configuration

To determine the best data retention configuration for your specific needs, consider the following resources and factors:

Server Resources

Evaluate the resources available on your server, including disk space, memory, and processing power. Larger retention periods might require more storage space and could impact performance. Ensure that your server can accommodate the increased data storage requirements without compromising system performance.

Regular Monitoring and Review

Periodically review your data retention settings and incident history to ensure they continue to meet your evolving needs. As your organization grows or changes, you may need to adjust the data retention period accordingly. Regularly monitoring and reviewing your configuration will help optimize the balance between data availability, resource utilization, and compliance.

Remember, it's essential to strike the right balance between retaining sufficient historical incident data and managing resources effectively.
