Precise keeps a rolling three year history. Some shops value this duration because it includes multiple quarter-end and year-end processing windows. For others, they never look back beyond a year. The duration retained is configurable in Precise’s AdminPoint. Set it to meet your goals.
Likewise, in Precise’s alerting interface, Precise shows a history of samples with a date and timestamp. If an alert condition is tested often, rendering the alert history can take time. These instructions show how to change the duration of history presented; thereby, speeding up Precise’s alert GUI.
