Where tab

Use the Where tab to purge events captured by specific agents, domains, or sites. By default (when the Where tab is empty), events captured by all agents will be purged or archived.

Once you have located an agent, domain or site, select it and click Add to add it to the selection list at the bottom of the dialog.

Click OK to save your selection and close the dialog.
NOTE: Use Add With Events (instead of Add) to select agents, domains, or sites that already have an event associated with it in the database.

From the Purge and Archive wizard, select Purge, and then enable Only selected events to activate the criteria tabs.
