 The current data retention policy in the Setup -> Domain tab within CEM is configured to keep hourly data for 3 days, daily data for 15 days and weekly data for 27 weeks. This can be found in


  Users observe that they are able to pull a report for a specific transaction which displays hourly statistics for a date outside the data retention period.  Why is this?


All APM releases running APM CE (CEM)

Users can see data older than the CEM retention settings because the supporting statistics tables (such as StatsTranSetGroupAllDaily) in the database are subject to a non-configurable retention policy within the DB Cleanup Service of 2 years.


Configurable settings in the CEM Domains tab specify the retention policy only for user and user group related statistics tables which can be larger that non-user statistics tables.
