Issue Details

I have logged some data to my InsightCM server using my condition monitoring system. If I make a change to my aging strategy, for example, to delete waveform data after 1 day, will that affect my data that has already aged?


No. The aging strategy will only affect data that has not already aged. 


Additional Information

The Periodic Aging Strategy can be found within the Options menu of InsightCM. You can configure how long data sets will be retained and which sets will be permanently retained. 

Configuring an aging strategy is a good way to automatically manage disk space on your server. Retaining all data sets can quickly create a large amount of data that can be difficult to manage.
