Manage ECC queue table size for Discovery

The ECC Queue table retains messages sent out to MID servers, and the messages received from MID servers.

If Discovery is running on an instance, the size of this table can grow to several gigabytes. Most of the accumulated data is unnecessary, but some entries might be important for troubleshooting any problems with Discovery . For example, if Discovery is not properly capturing the disk drives on a particular Windows server, look in the ECC Queue at the data returned by the Windows - System Information probe. The best practice is to retain ECC Queue data from Discovery for at least a month.

By default, records in the ECC Queue older than 7 days are deleted automatically. Customers can set the deletion schedule by updating the table rotation schedule for the ECC queue.
