[smokeping-users] Managing a lot of historic data

Hello all,
I'm running a 'master' Smokeping (v.2.004002) instance, with Slaves located
across 20 sites, and each site has four targets itself, and are checked by
all of the slave instances...

This setup as been running for quite some time now, and it's come to my
realisation that each site is totalling about 3 - 4GB of data - about 80GB

Are there any documents floating about with regards to
rotating/cleaning/compressing files, and/or clearing out any data more than
2yrs old for example?

I noted especially that the "*.slave_cache" files are the large ones,
whereas the actual RRD files are comparatively small - but I'm failing to
find any specific documentation about what these slave_cache files are
actually used for?

Thanks in advance!
