transaction storage on dynatrace managed missing documentation

there is no clear explanation about storage terminology used in dynatrace managed environment settings, so i would like to have exact answers to these questions:

what type of data is included in "Transaction storage" setting ?

what happens when limit is set on transaction storage and transaction storage limit is reached ? (f.e. due to high limits set on Service request level retention, Service code level retention, Real user monitoring retention, ..)

what happens when limit to "Transaction storage" is set to lower value then actually reached ? (and when it should happen after setting change ?)

thanks

What type of data is included in "Transaction storage" setting ?

Raw transaction data, pure path details level, RUM raw data, webchecks raw data, mobile javascript symbol files.

What happens when limit is set on transaction storage and transaction
storage limit is reached ?

Data truncation is launched. This means that Server will start to remove data starting from the category that has the longest retention time.

What happens when limit to "Transaction storage" is set to lower
value then actually reached ? (and when it should happen after setting
change ?)

Same as above.

thanks for answers, one more question:

so that means that "Transaction storage" is used by data specified in "Service request level retention" and "Service code level retention" ?


ok it seems it's working the way i supposed, transaction storage limit cuts data set by other thresholds and warning sign is displayed in environment settings "Transaction storage has been truncated due to quota limits"
