How can I manage storage to fit our needs and the needs of the operational IT department?

Possible cause  

Storage of log data has become a concern.

Proposed action  

There is more than one possible solution to this problem.

Do the following:

  1. Make use of the archive and purge functionality by adjusting the rate at which both events occur against the logging database only. File logging does not provide file management controls.

    1. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges.

    2. Go to C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Logging.

    3. Run Qlik.Logging.Service.exe update --archive_age_in_days X (where X is the number of days).

    4. Run Qlik.Logging.Service.exe update --purge_age_in_days X (where X is the number of days).

    5. Restart the Qlik Logging Service.

  2. Set a maximum database size so that the Qlik Logging Service can automatically trim older rows out of the database to maintain overhead.

    1. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges.

    2. Go to C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Logging.

    3. Run Qlik.Logging.Service.exe update --maximum_db_size_in_gb X (where X is the size in GB).

    4. Restart the Qlik Logging Service.
