What are the best practices when using the Data Retention Scheduler for NW Packet decoders/concentrators? We typically set the retention to 30 to 90 days. The default for "Run" is every 15 minutes which seems quite low/often in our case.


The documentation at Decoder: Services Config View - Data Retention Scheduler does not explain the impact of choosing Interval or Date & Time. Is there a difference in performance? When set to 15 minutes, I imaging the process runs every 15 minutes and removes 15 minutes of old data every time. When set to Weekends the process will run once (twice really) a week but will remove 7 days of old data. Is one of these strategies preferred over the other?
