    • You can see when the last purge tasks were run in the Cloudera Navigator console (From the Cloudera Manager Admin console, go to Clusters > Cloudera Navigator. Select Administration > Purge Settings.)
    • If a purge hasn't run recently, run it by editing the Purge schedule on the same page.
