Extend transaction snapshot retention time

The maximum allowed data retention period for transaction snapshot is 5 weeks (https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO43/Database+Size+and+Data+Retention). Is there a way to extend the retention period beyond that? I hope to always keep the data.

Re: Extend transaction snapshot retention time

Hi,

You can archive the snapshots which are important. You can keep those snapshots in controller even after the retention period is over.

Please refer to the below doc and screenshot for reference

Re: Extend transaction snapshot retention time

Hi,

 

You can add the below node property "max-snapshots-per-minute” to increase transacion snapshots. May i know which agent you are using?

Re: Extend transaction snapshot retention time

Hi Atyuha,

 

Thanks for your reply!

What I tried to achieve is a bit different: I already took some snapshots, and according to the doc, the snapshot data is only kept for "snapshots.retention.period" (max allowed 840) hours. I hope to store the snapshots for beyond the max allowed period (say 1 year or more). Is there a way to do that?

 

I'm using python agents with an on-premise controller. Thanks!

Hi ,

Unfortunately there is no way to keep the snapshots for 1 year as it will create huge overhead and has impact on controller performance.

Re: Extend transaction snapshot retention time

Thank you so much! Is there a way to work around it (or even hack it)? Some particular snapshots are really important to me and I hope to keep them in the controller. Since I'm using the on-premise controller, I'm ok with the consequences such as degraded performance.
