About Metrics Storage

Metrics widgets can show metrics data for the selected build in your filter. Metrics data, however, consume substantial storage. In order to preserve space, DTP keeps eight historical builds from a filter with metrics by default. The metric data for older builds in the filter will be removed during regular database pruning. If you choose a pruned build when configuring widget settings, the following message is displayed:

''No data available. Target build does not have details data."

See Setting Retention Period for Metrics Details for instructions on customizing the default metrics storage settings (eight historical builds).
