Title : Is it safe to purge ITCM Software Usage Audit History?

Scenario: Auditing was enabled for Software Usage and since then, it created 100 Million of records in the dbo.audithis table. Can the records be purged as they are no longer needed.

Answer: It is safe to purge unwanted records in the dbo.audithis table as it does not have any dependencies on Audit information. Please note that purged data will not be seen in DSM Explorer anymore.
