Hi Tony,

There is no default retention policy defined.
To clean up such records for cinder you can run command
cinder-manage db purge <days to retain>

For nova it's a bit more complicated as first you would archive these
records and only then purge them from shadow tables. This is done with
nova-manage command.
You can check docs regarding it's usage:
