Enable more frequent automatic purges

Because MTE runs automatic purges at the same rate as the specified maximum age (or once daily if set to more than 86,400 seconds), translations often exceed their intended lifespan before being purged. Could the purges be more frequent, regardless of the maximum age value?

  • Completely agree! If we take an example scenario:

    00:00 Purge timing set to 86,400 seconds

    00:01 Translations made

    At 00:00 the next day, the purge is executed and does not identify the translations as ready to be purged.

    At 00:00 the following day, close to 48 hours later, the translations are finally purged.

    It makes sense to me that the frequency of the check is run at a greater interval so that purges take place closer to the intended limit.
