    Hi Mahesh,

    Purge is an act which will remove xml files from archive folder of Inbound/outbound ports in MDM.

    I guess there is some program handled by Basis team which purges xml files from MDM folders and it's not a MDM pack.

    When any of your archive folders are overloaded with xml files over a period of months (each xml file of size 50 Mb-100Mb) it occupies lot of memory. Under such condition, basis team members receive notification over email. On receiving notifications, basis team runs a program at their end which will purge files from Inbound/Outbound fodlers of MDM to some other directory.

    I am not sure about purge.xml you mentioned above. May be this is what you are relating to!

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Ali
