Two questions about historical data kept in the DFM database.
1. How can you see what the retention periods are for certain pieces of data? For example say I scan for volume sizes every 10 minutes. Is that data kept for a week (at 10 minute interval) or just for a day at 10 minute intervals? When do the sampling intervals turn into days or weeks? After 5 months I wouldn't expect to have 10 minute interval, but where/how do I find DFM reducing the data sampling?
2. I can run a report 'now' (or schedule a report) and that shows me the data as it looks now. Can I run a report to show me how the data looked last week? ie. If I'm having a latency issue on a volume I can only see the latencies averaged over the past day/week/month/year but I'd like to see how did it look last month, not what was the average.
