Workload XM Purge Event Parameters

Lists the Workload XM purge event parameter settings that enable you to set the event’s execution time, frequency, and maximum purge duration. You can also exclude files and directories from being purged with the setting.

Table 1. Purge Event Parameters
Parameter Description Example
blobstore.purger.frequency The purge event’s recurring schedule, based on one of the following values:
  • None. By default, the purge process is set to none.
  • Daily. When this value is set for the first time, files are automatically deleted the next day at 1am.
  • Weekly. By default, files are automatically deleted every Saturday at 1am.
  • Monthly. When this value is set for the first time, files are automatically deleted the last Saturday of the month at 1am. Thereafter, files are deleted every 28th day. The monthly parameter uses the 28 day calendar format
blobstore.purger.frequency = none

The purge event’s start time, based on the 24-hour time format. Where, 01:00 and 0:00 are valid time values, and 24:00, 1:0, and 01:0 are not valid time values

By default, Workload XM schedules the purge process when it will cause the least amount of disruption to users.

blobstore.purger.start.time = 01:00

Lists the files and directories that are to be excluded from the purge event.

Where each file and/or directory is separated by a comma and where:
  • a file value must use its full path, directory name, and file name.
  • a directory value must use its full path and directory name. -4fa1-be0c-4529ee4eb98f,/cloudera-dbus/HiveAudit,/cloudera-sigma-olap-impala/02f54999-b9a 4-4dca-8237-d1b047755efb,/cloudera-sigma-sdx-payloads/2bc85719-7a3e-4438-96a4-8fc0f77ff


The maximum deletion limit.

By default, the maximum number of files that can be deleted by the purge process is 500,000. This ensures that a purge cycle is not overloaded, does not introduce bugs, or takes up too much time.

When the deletion limit is met, the purge process:
  • Stops processing for a daily scheduled value.
  • Stops processing and restarts the next day for all other scheduled values.
