Configuring Pruning

Your Alloy Discovery database is a repository that stores audit snapshots and change history data. As the database grows, its size may adversely affect the performance of Alloy Discovery. You can use the pruning service to automatically delete old data. This might include, for example, snapshots for computers that were renamed or physically removed from the network, or old change history data.

You can configure the pruning feature as follows:

  1. In the Settings app, navigate to General > Repository Options.
  2. Under Pruning, specify the following options:
    • If you want to delete the audit information about computers and network devices that has not been updated in a long time, select the Remove Network Nodes that are older than check box and enter the pruning threshold in days.
    • If you want to delete old change history data, select the Remove Change Events that are older than check box and enter the pruning threshold in days, months, or years.
  3. Click Save.
