    Name Description

    Task type


    Start on

    This attribute specifies a Cluster node on which the task may process.

    This attribute is accessible only in Cluster environment.

    If it is empty, it may be any node; if there are nodes specified, the task will be processed on the first node which is online and ready.

    Archivator type

    There are two possible values: delete or archive.

    Delete removes records without any possibility of recovery.

    Archive option removes records from the database, but creates a ZIP package with CSV files containing the deleted data.

    Older than

    Time period (in minutes) - specifies which records are evaluated as obsolete. Records older than the specified interval are stored in archives/deleted.

    Output path for archives

    This attribute is useful only for the archive option.

    Include executions history

    If checked, Execution History will be archived/deleted as well. Log files of graph runs are included as well.

    Include temp files

    If checked, the archivator saves/removes all graph temporary files older than the value in Older than attribute. The temporary files are files with graph debug data, dictionary files and files created by graph components. Log files are not considered as temp files.

    Note that due to performance optimization, the deletion of files may be postponed if the Older than value is lower than 5 minutes (i.e. some temporary files are not deleted sooner than after 5 minutes).

    If checked, the archivator will include task history run records.

    Include server instance history
