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, click Delivery Settings.
  2. From the Delivery Types list, click Alert Viewer.
  3. Under Delete Alert Viewer Data, do any of the following:
    • Select After to set the retention period.

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

    • Select Over to set the file-size restriction.

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

  4. Click Apply.
