As of July 2020, the data retention policies for Sysdig Monitor and Sysdig Secure are as described below.
When a host or instance is no longer monitored, i.e. when an agent is uninstalled, the historical data continues to be retained for the stated times.
Note: If required, you can change the standard data retention settings by using Sysdig’s REST API. A Sysdig support team or professional services member should assist, as there are a variety of storage and timeline implications to consider before making such a change.
