How long does Splunk Cloud store logs?

Explorer

I am using Splunk Cloud. Assuming the total storage limit is never reached, how long are my logs stored for?

You configure data retention for each of your indexes. See Data policies in the Splunk Cloud User Manual.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Do you know what the default max age of events? I know that the total max size is specified by the Splunk Cloud license, but I cannot find any information on the default max age.

Looking in the Splunk Enterprise Managing Indexers and Clusters of Indexers manual, the Set a retirement and archiving policy topic says that the default value of frozenTimePeriodInSecs is 188697600 seconds, or approximately 6 years.

I'll assume that is the default for Splunk Cloud as well. Thank you, ChrisG!
