First-time Purges
The activity of purging generates extra journaling, especially if you purge a large volume of data, and this journaling can consume a large amount of disk space. For performance reasons, you might adopt the following approach when you first purge management data:
  1. Start by setting the purge parameters so that a relatively small amount of data is purged.
    As discussed in the next section you use the option Do not purge most recent to specify how many days’ worth of records to keep. Set this to a relatively large number.
  2. Perform the purge.
  3. Gradually decrease the number of days of data to keep until Do not purge most recent is set as desired.
