Issue/Introduction

When defining the CA7LOG event to ENF for the CA7IDASH task, what value should the retention period (RP) be?

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : iDash

Resolution

The retention period is the number of days to keep events in the ENF database. We recommend keeping 1 day of events for recovery purposes.

Below is the recommend values for the CA7LOG event:

DCM(CAL2DCM3)               
EVENT(CA7LOG,ACT)                                    
EVENT(CA7LOG,REC)                                    
EVENT(CA7LOG,PURGE=Y)                                
EVENT(CA7LOG,RP=1)                                   

Additional Information

It is highly recommend to use CALOGGER instead of ENF for storing the CA7LOG events. For more information regarding implementing CALOGGER for the CA7LOG events, see the following link:
