You can set limits that define how long to retain alert log data and how much to retain.

If you set a retention period, alert log data is deleted in weekly increments after the specified period expires. If you set a file-size restriction, alert log data is deleted in weekly increments after the specified file size is exceeded, and the oldest data is deleted first.

  1. From the Setup Options list, select Delivery Settings.
  2. From the Delivery Types list, select Alert Viewer.
  3. Under Delete Alert Viewer Data, do any of the following:
    • To set the retention period, select After.

      Type an integer number in the box and select a time period from the list.

    • To set the file size restriction, select Over.

      Type an integer number in the box and select a file-size unit from the list.

  4. Click Apply.
