In Control Compliance Suite, the Standards module generates results after running checks for a compliance policy. The results include detailed evidence data which describes the reason why a check has passed or failed. You can use the evidence data for remediation, to demonstrate compliance to auditors, or in litigation.
In CCS 11.0, the evidence data of Standards module and external data providers is stored directly in the reporting database CSM_Reports. The data is stored in separate filegroups for 90 days from the installation of the product.
The details of the evidence data that is stored in the reporting database, is as follows:
Evidence Storage Table Name for one quarter
Default Filegroup Path
By default the secondary filegroup .ndf file is created in the same directory where primary filegroup CSM_reports.mdf file resides.
The existing evidence data remains in the primary filegroup, CSM_reports.
You can perform certain tasks to optimize database performance and storage management.
