Introduction:
How are Alarm and QOS Retention periods controlled. And How to I change them if I need to.
Instructions:
Currently there are 3 retention period settings.
2 are located in the NAS probe
1 is located in the data_engine probe.

Below is detailed information
1) NAS stored data in two places, the local sql Lite database and the back end SQL databases used by UMP.
To see the retention time for the local SQL database please open the nas probe and go to the setup tab and look at the transaction log tab.

Usually most clients keep the two NAS settings the same. This is also what support would recommend.
