Data Retention and Optimize Searching

Community Member

The past couple of weeks I have experienced a lag when searching for courses. It has been worse the past two days and I saw on the Canvas Status page others may have been experiencing the same. 

Even though this is a known issue, I'm taking this opportunity to clean up our data in hopes to speed things up.  We have had Canvas since 2015 and never had policies on what would be retained. (aka everything was kept) We also imported many things from 2013-14 from our previous LMS. 

So far I have deleted 1000 unused shells.  Any recommendations on retention policies and other ways to optimize searching?
