Configuring Storage Maintenance

Storage Maintenance allows you to control the size of your quarantine folders and the amount of log data that the system saves. You can also view the current usage information for the quarantined folders.

  1. Go to Administration > System Maintenance > Storage Maintenance.
  2. Specify the global quarantine settings.
    • Global quarantine folder size: Specify the size of the global quarantine folder in GB

      Depending on your version of the Deep Discovery Email Inspector appliance, configure the global quarantine size as follows:

      • Deep Discovery Email Inspector 7100: The quarantine size must be a value between 1 and 100

      • Deep Discovery Email Inspector 9100: The quarantine size must be a value between 1 and 400

    • Delete message attachments, links, and analysis reports when the free global quarantine space is equal to or lower than: Specify the quarantine space threshold for automatic file deletion

      Note:

      The threshold value must be between 10 and 50.

      Deep Discovery Email Inspector purges 10% more than the specified percentage.

  3. Specify the End-User Quarantine (EUQ) settings.
    • Remove all data (including messages and approved senders): Click Remove to delete all data in the EUQ database

    • End-User Quarantine folder size: Specify the size of the quarantine folder in GB
    • Delete message attachments, links, and analysis reports when the free End-User Quarantine space is equal to or lower than: Specify the EUQ space threshold for automatic file deletion

    • Maximum quarantined message age: Specify the number of days to keep quarantined spam messages

      Note:

      The specified value must be between 1 and 60.

      Important:

      Integration with Deep Discovery Director for Virtual Analyzer image deployment requires additional disk space. After registering Deep Discovery Email Inspector to Deep Discovery Director 5.0 (or later), configure Deep Discovery Email Inspector to delete logs when the total free disk space is less than 20%.
