PAM Admin has noticed their storage space on their remote CIFS/NFS share is very large.
When investigating they noticed that they have many days of PAM Session Recordings.
They Implemented a Purge Policy in:
PAM UI >> Configuration >> Session Recording >> Purge Policy 

However they don't see any session recordings deleted.

When does the PAM Session Recording Purge Policy run?


PAM 3.x 


When set - the job will run at:
  • Midnight (UTC) and delete any logs that are older than the days set.
Unless they meet the other options: 
  • Exclude Recordings with Violations 
  • or 
  • Exclude Suspicious Recordings.
