Events are saved in the GigaVUE‑FM database. Events records continues to grow over time. GigaVUE‑FM allows you to archive and purge these records based on a specific date. Records older than that date will be exported to an SFTP server.
When archiving, the records are archived as a CSV file with a timestamp appended. For example, event-archive20200605143323.csv. The file is compressed to a zip file before exporting to the server.
The archive and purge option for events records is available to the following user categories:
- Users with Write permission on the Infrastructure Management, Traffic Control Management, FM Security Management, Whitelist Cups Management, Device Certificate, System Management, Others resource categories can archive their permitted Events.
- Users with Write permission on System Management category can purge events. Users belonging to this category will be able to purge all events older than the date provided. The Purge option will delete all events in the system, even those events that are not visible to the user as per his role definition.
- Super-admin users can perform all the activities mentioned above.
Note: The archive and purge action for events is also recorded to the audit log.
