Is there any way to have the Foglight Experience Monitor (FxM) FTP backup directory (not the appliance database itself) retain only 6 months of data? We don't need to keep the data any longer than six months and would like to save the disk space.
There is no feature to limit how long the FxM backup FTP directory retains data, but a best practice is to periodically backup what is in the FTP backup directory to tape. That would reduce what needs to be stored in the FTP hard disk itself. Refer to SOL38206.
If you do not want to backup to tape, then you could just copy the contents of the backup directory to another directory every N weeks and then clear the original directory.
