Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: The text at the bottom of the Events timeline is inaccurate and possibly misleading. Consequence: Users can see a misleading message causing them to question the validity of the Events data. Fix: Update the text to simply say "Older events are not stored" rather than trying to be so precise. Result: The text at the bottom of the Events timeline communicates the intended message to the user.

Description of problem:

At the very bottom of the Home > Events page after the oldest event that was generated ~2 hours ago (events older than that are purged) some text explains that "There are no events before X minutes ago" where X is the time that you first loaded the Events page.

This is usually inaccurate, since most of the events on the page were likely generated before X minutes ago.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to Home > Events page
2. Scroll to the very bottom of the page
3. See "There are no events before X minutes ago"

Actual results:
Text that says "There are no events before X minutes ago" which is usually inaccurate.

Expected results:
Text that says "Events older than 2 hours are not stored." and no dynamically-updating relative time.

Waiting on confirmation of correct TTL so message is correct.

Comment 3 Yanping Zhang 2021-01-07 02:24:50 UTC
Checked on ocp 4.7 cluster with payload 4.7.0-0.nightly-2021-01-06-160219. Now "There are no events before X minutes ago" is replaced with "Older events are not stored."
The bug is fixed.
