Database Management Node

The MessageStats Database stores the information that is used by MessageStats Reports. When the database is properly tuned, information can be efficiently stored, and MessageStats Reports can quickly access the required data.

Over time, the MessageStats Database grows and the database server can become strained. However, it is critical that the database retain enough data for any historical reporting needs that might arise.

It is recommended that you follow the Microsoft Best Practices for backing up data and archiving historical data. To help you manage your database, MessageStats provides Database Management functionality. You can selectively delete obsolete data and tune the database to provide optimal performance.

For information about Database Management, please see Database Management .
