The administrator can use the storage management feature to view the storage occupied by audit session data and specify the storage duration. This topic describes how to use the storage management feature.

    Note Valid values: 1 to 9999. Default value: 180. Unit: days. When the storage is used up, the data stored for a period that exceeds the specified value is automatically deleted.
    • If the size of the remaining session data exceeds the maximum storage after the data is deleted, Bastionhost automatically deletes the session data that is stored at the earliest time.
    • If you do not enable automatic deletion, Bastionhost automatically overwrites the data that is stored at the earliest time when the storage is used up.
