    Since IBM Sterling Control Center was released, you are able to purge data from the CC_PROCESS, CC_PROCESS_DVG, CC_FILE_TRANSFER, and CC_FILE_TRANSFER_DVG tables, automatically, via an additional setting, like the one for event data.

    Note Control Center is also able to automatically purge data from another summary table, ROLL_UP, if the engine property SUMMARY_TABLES_PURGE_ROLL_UP is added, with a value of TRUE. By default its value is FALSE. The same link above provides more details on this.
