Seems like I have an issue. 
I have a configured retention : 

But I have .rrd files from May 04 2023 
Can I delete these files and keep only the last 90 days on the server ? 
Why the retention doesnt applied ? 
Im on 22.10 currently, planning to update next week.

Yes, you can delete them as long as they match your internal retention policies. A command example:

find /var/lib/centreon/metrics/ -not -path '*/\.rrd' -type f -mtime +90 -exec rm -f \{\} \;
