Select the Repositories tab in Admin Settings to display the list of all system repositories. Click on the Active and Inactive buttons to change the repository status.
A default repository can be specified so that each time you log into XRay, the default repository’s data will load. This is a user-based setting. See Manage Settings for more information.
To learn about dashboards for repositories, see Repository Dashboards.
Create a repository
On the Repositories tab, click the Create button to add a new repository to the system. Review the settings in the table below. Click Create to create the new repository.
|Aggregate Retention||Defines the length of time, in seconds, that aggregated data stored in Datasets table as the result of View evaluations is kept, after which it is deleted from database.|
|Daily Stream Bytes||Number of bytes that can be streamed per calendar day.|
|Daily Stream Messages||Total number of individual messages that can be streamed per calendar day.|
|Data Points||Defines the total number of data points (total number of Activities, Events, and Snapshots) that can be stored in the data store at any one time (based on Retention).|
|Max Message Size||Defines the maximum number of bytes that is stored in the Message field of Events (generally represents the payload of the data involved in the Event).|
|Max Property Value Rollup||Deprecated.|
|Max Tokens||The maximum number of Access Tokens that can be defined in the entire system (for Master License) or in a specific organization (for Default or organization-specific license)|
|Rate Limit Bytes||Controls the rate at which your data is processed. This is a limit on the number of bytes per second.|
|Rate Limit Count||Defines the maximum streaming rate, in messages per second, which data can be sent to the system. If data comes in at a higher rate, the defined Overage Policy will be applied to the connection.|
Defines the length of time, in seconds, that data is kept. When the Retention time expires, the data is deleted from the database.
5,184,000 seconds = 60 days
604,800 seconds = 7 days
Defines what action is taken when the streaming rate exceeds either Rate Limit Bytes or Rate Limit Count:
THROTTLE – the connection is throttled so that the processing rate on the connection is the minimum of RateLimitBytes and RateLimitCount
DROP – messages are dropped until the streaming rate slows down to the limits defined by RateLimitBytes and RateLimitCount
ALLOW – no action is taken, and the streaming is allowed to continue at the current rate
