DaysToKeepMessageEventsDefault - System Parameter

The DaysToKeepMessageEventsDefault System Parameter determines The default number of days to keep events. Deleting an event will also delete any data/body and context. This value is assigned to the new messagetypes as its default, you can easily change the number of days to keep data per message type. The Logging Service must be restarted if this value is changed.

We at Nodinite recommend that you set a small number like 14 days (default proposition in the Install and Update Tool).

If you log more than you delete, you will eventually fill the Log Database until it either gets slow, or out of disk space.

Nodinite does not have a problem with large volumes of logged data since we create new databases as the old ones get too large. You will eventually get into the problem, or at least the administration with having disk space for all that you choose to keep. Nodinite has a very clever solution to help you keep what matters and that is by deleting events based on content (actually the datatype for the message, which we happen to call a MessageType).

System Parameter Name Data Type Values/Example Comment
