Configure system prune settings

To limit the amount of reporting data being stored in your Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM) software’s database, you can prune it. You can specify the interval for which you want Citrix ADM to retain network reporting data, events, audit logs, and task logs. By default, this data is pruned every 24 hours (at 00.00 hours).


The value you specify cannot exceed 30 days or be less than 15 days.

To configure system prune settings for performance reports using Citrix ADM:

  1. Navigate to System > Administration. Under Data Pruning, click System and Instance Data Pruning.
  2. In the Configure System Prune Settings page, specify the number of days for which to retain data, and click OK.

You can enable automatic pruning by selecting the  Enable Automatic Data Prune check box. An alarm is triggered and an email is sent when disk usage breaches the configured Data Prune Threshold Value. To change the percentage of disk space (pruning threshold), click Edit.

Note Pruning starts when any one of the criteria is met – data prune threshold value or data to keep (days). Whichever is met first, takes precedence over the other.

You can configure and enable the diskUtilizationHigh alarm (by default) and specify the following:

  • Severity, such as, Critical.
  • Alarm Threshold. Type the value for which the event severity is calculated.
  • Time. Time length (in minutes) after which you want to trigger the alarm.
