Server Maintenance

If correctly configured in the Server Maintenance tab, the ERA Server database will be maintained automatically and optimized with no need for further configuration. You can define the following cleanup settings:

Log collecting parameters... – Defines the level of logs which are received by the server.

Cleanup Settings... – Deletes the logs by time parameter.

Advanced Cleanup Settings... – Deletes the logs by count of log records.

Specify how many log entries should be kept after the cleanup and the level of logs which are received by the server. For example, if you choose Delete all threat logs except last 600000 records in Advanced Cleanup Settings by Count of Log Records and the level of Log Collecting Parameters for Threats is defined as Level 3 - Above+Normal, the last 600000 records that contain information about critical errors, alert notifications and informative notifications will be kept in the Database. You can also limit the log entries using the Cleanup by Time Parameter.

Cleanup scheduler Performs the above selected options at the specified interval. Click Change... next to this option to set the time parameters. Click Clean Up Now to start the cleanup immediately.

Compact & repair scheduler - Compacts the database in the specified time interval at the specified hour. Compacting and repairing eliminates inconsistencies and glitches and makes communication with the database faster. Click Change... next to this option to set the time parameters. Click Compact Now to start a compact & repair immediately.

NOTE: Both the Cleanup and the Compact & repair tools are time and resource intensive, so we recommend scheduling them to run when there is minimum load on the server (for example run the Cleanup at night, and the Compact & repair on weekends).

By default, entries and logs older than three/six months are deleted and the Compact & repair task is performed every fifteen days.
