This doc applies to accounts on our New Relic One pricing plan. If you're on our original product-based pricing plan, see Original data retention. Not sure which you're on? See Overview of pricing and account/user structure.
The Data retention UI page provides information on how long your data will be stored in the New Relic database (NRDB). Standard accounts have between 8 and 395 days of retention, depending on which capabilities of the New Relic platform you’re using. This level of data retention ensures that you can explore your data and experience the value of New Relic. Beyond that, you can purchase additional retention to ensure it suits your business needs.
Use the Data retention page to review the sources of data that you’re storing, when they were last updated, and the length the data is stored.
|Source||Event namespace||Days retained|
|Browser||Browser JS events||8|
|Browser||Browser SPA monitoring||8|
|Browser||Browser page view timing||8|
|Custom events||Custom events||30|
|Metrics (dimensional metrics)||Metric: Raw||30|
|Mobile||Mobile crash event trails||8|
|Distributed tracing data||Traces||8|
Note: Metric timeslice data cannot be extended. That data type is aggregated (averaged) first to 1-minute rollups that are retained for 8 days. After 8 days, the 1-minute rollups are aggregated to 1-hour roll-ups and retained for 90 days. After 90 days, key metric data is then stored in 1-hour periods indefinitely.
Once telemetry data (events, metrics, logs, traces) is reported to New Relic and available for querying, that data cannot be edited or deleted. This is a purposeful design decision that optimizes New Relic's speed and performance. Data will expire after its data retention ends.
