If administrators set data-aging rules, NI InsightCM Server automatically deletes some or all historical data when specified conditions are true. For example, an aging rule might specify that NI InsightCM Server deletes all periodic data collected more than seven days ago except for two acquisitions per day.

If you observe incorrect or bad data on the Data Viewer page and you want to ensure that NI InsightCM deletes the bad data, complete the following steps to mark the data to be deleted:

  1. Move the cursor to the point of interest in the Trend viewer or click in a sensor data viewer that contains the data you want to delete.
  2. Complete the following step according to the current workspace mode:
    • (Periodic Data mode) Click the Action menu  on the Trend viewer toolbar and select Delete Data Events.
    • (Stream Data mode) Click the Action menu  on the Trend viewer toolbar and select Delete Stream.

Impact on Other Users

Retaining and deleting data directly affects the data that NI InsightCM Server stores. Any user who connects to the NI InsightCM Server can mark data for retention, but you need special permissions to delete data.
