  • Hi BaluChalla,

    Step-1:Update the retention values from 365 to 3 days or whatever old history you want to keep.

    Step-2:Alter procedure “SSISDB.[internal].[cleanup_server_retention_window]” SET @delete_batch_size=1000

    instead of 10, in case if your DB size grown more than 10 GB.

    Step-3:Run the below query to Compress the tables data.

    Step-4:Then using below queries Shrink the database if size is more than 10 GB.
