What is the syntax of values for 'Events Purge Interval' ?

There is an option for Events Purge Interval - but the help page doesn't specify the syntax of possible values - what are they? (i.e. 3w, 6m, 1y, etc.)?

Re: What is the syntax of values for 'Events Purge Interval' ?

This can be specified in seconds, minutes, hours, days, or weeks. For example, if the interval is to be specified as 90 days, then enter it as 90d.

Similaryly, 90w => 90 weeks

90h => 90 hours

90m => 90 minutes

90s => 90 seconds

for e.g 'dfm option set eventsPurgeInterval=90m'

If you do not specify any alphabet next to number it would default to seconds.

for e.g 'dfm option set eventsPurgeInterval=90' => 90 seconds

Also, there is a public KB article that explains the syntax and gives examples: https://now.netapp.com/Knowledgebase/solutionarea.asp?id=kb13992
