Archiving and Purging Jobs in Security Director
The Archive/Purge Jobs page enables you to archive and then
purge jobs. You can purge jobs before a specified date and time. Jobs
can be archived locally (on any node that is in the UP state) or to
a remote server. When you archive jobs locally, the archive files
are stored in the default
/var/lib/mysql/archive directory on the active Junos Space node. When you archive jobs
to a remote server, the archive files are stored in the directory
that you specify.
To archive and purge jobs:
- Select Monitor > Job Management.
The Job Management page appears.
- Click the Archive/Purge icon.
The Archive / Purge Jobs page appears.
- Specify the jobs to be archived and purged according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.
- Click OK.
A job is triggered and you are taken to the Job Management page. After a few seconds, the Job Detail: Job Archive and Purge page pops up displaying details of the job.
- Click OK to close the Job Details page.
You are returned to the Job Management page.
