a customer ask what he can do to shrink the folderwatcher.db, because it's size is 20 GB and much bigger then on other Fileservers. Maybe this is a bug (V11 SP18.5)?
The Documentation describes only what is logged but no way to minimize that, only a additional setting to disable the feature.
File activities on the client computer are checked every 5 minutes and any abnormal activity is reported to the administrator by an alert and event. For the first 7 days, the client computer is monitored and analyzed for day to day activity. After 7 days, a base line of file activities is established and alerts and events are sent to the administrator when a large number of abnormal file activities are detected.
Up to 30 days of file activities are maintained in a database (Folderwatcher.db) on the client computer for use by the monitoring algorithm.
Thanks for some information.
