What the CMS service is

The Content Management System (CMS) service manages objects to ensure that the StorageGRID Webscale system’s information lifecycle management (ILM) policy is satisfied.

The CMS service carries out the operations of the active ILM policy’s ILM rules, determining how object data is protected over time. For general information about the role of the CMS service when content is ingested and copied, see the Grid Primer.
