Changing the Amount of Retained Data

SSEC sets a default of 64,800 SDF files (three full days, or about 65 GB) for the amount of GVAR data to be retained. Perform the following procedure if you want to change the amount of data retained in your ingestor.

1. Edit the file /data/opt/etc/rc.GVAR

2. Change the value of the variable named SAVE_FILES= to the number of files to retain. For example, a GVAR SDF file represents 4 seconds of time. Therefore, 900 SDF files are generated during one hour of continuous transmission time, requiring about 1 gigabyte of data storage.

3. Stop and restart the ingestor process.
