ActiveControl includes a data archiving capability to ensure that the performance of the tool does not deteriorate over time due to data constraints.
This can be used to archive historical Business Tasks, Transport Forms, import runs and analysis history data.
Archiving is performed by ActiveControl Administrators in the backend of the ActiveControl Domain Controller, via program /BTI/TE_RARCHIVE_ENGINE
This program can be used to archive as well as restore data. It can also be run in test mode where required.

If there are events found for a particular import run, in table /BTI/TE_EVENTS then the import run can not be archived.

Reporting on archived data
It is possible to run relevant reports relating to Activities, Events and Test Results on archived data.
