All captured and analyzed network information is saved to the
NetResident database. At some point, the database may grow too
large and this will affect the program's performance. On the other
hand, some records become obsolete over time and are no longer
needed. In this case we suggest that you remove unnecessary records
using the Database Management
Click File => Manage
Database to launch the Database Management Wizard.
Click on the Next
button. The next page lets you view the current state of the
database, its size and the number of records. It also allows you to
choose the operation to perform with the database.
This page lets you view current network events saved in the
NetResident database. The Date column allows you to find the
records by date (year, month, day) when the recorded network events
occurred. The Records
columns displays the number of network events for the period,
selected in the Date
column. If you would like to delete all network events in the
database, select the Delete
All option. If you would like to delete the records for a
specified time period (day, month, year), check the corresponding
box and select the Delete
Important: The records will be
permanently deleted and cannot be recovered!
If you'd like to save the database for further use on another
computer, select Export
Database. NetResident will save the database in a file that
can be viewed later by selecting the Import Database option.
Database Export writes all events
from the database to a file. Database import deletes all records in
your current database!
If you need to restore data from an archive, select the
Restore from archive
option. Note that event dates are also imported from an archive, so
you may need to change the filter settings for the records to be
shown. If the database size limitation option is enabled, event
records are automatically archived at the end of the day, and the
archive would contain duplicated records. To prevent this from
happening, you need to either disable the database size limitation
option or delete the required records manually.
Choose the desired operation and click the Next button. When you select Import or
Export options, you will be prompted for a database file name. If
the Restore from archive
option is selected, you will need to indicate which folder in the
archive contains the records for the desired date. Database
maintenance may take a significant amount of time. Data monitoring
and logging will be paused while the changes are being entered into
