Precise Alerting: duration of history & GUI speed

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.
