Set the number of days to keep error globals.


[Startup]    ErrorPurge=n

n is an integer in the range 1—1000. The default value is 30.


ErrorPurge is the number of days to keep the error globals for the ^%ETN error handler. Errors older than this are deleted on the next InterSystems IRIS® data platform restart.

Changing This Parameter

On the Startup page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Startup), in the ErrorPurge row, select Edit. Enter a number of days.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change ErrorPurge in the Config.StartupOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in Editing the Active CPF).

If you edit this setting, the change is applied the next time you restart InterSystems IRIS.
