The Audit Log capacity error message

Updated Confluence Server from 7.4 to 7.10 this weekend and the process went fine however the Audit log did some serious auditing during the update and filled the audit log. I lowered the retention period to 6 months down from infinity, as instructed in this technote but the error is still showing in the server health page. Is there a way to purge more of the audit messages?

set short retention period :)  ? 

Hi @Ben Radlinski did the issue got resolved 

Hi @Gonchik Tsymzhitov we tried setting the retention period to less years but we are loosing a lot of data , should we have to take a backup in db or any separate file will be existing in server side to take a backup or how can i proceed further please help .

I'm checking my notes and I believe it finally cleared itself out and stopped producing the error 2-3 days after I set the retention period to 6 months.

HI @Ben Radlinski can you confirm how you have taken backup , so that i can try the same method
