  • Purge Logs to optimize active storage (on-demand or create a purge policy).
  • Archive Logs to optimize active storage
  • To enable archiving, specify data size of active storage as 1 TB (minimum).
  • Minimum active storage duration for logs to be archived: 30 days.
  • Archive data permanently remains in the archive storage (if enabled).
  • Archived data is removed after 60 days for terminated accounts.
