    determining whether the archival profile is associated with one or more archival attributes of the incoming monitoring device data;

    if the archival profile is associated with one or more archival attributes;

    processing the incoming monitoring device data having one or more archival attributes that match the archived profile into a compressed format; and

    selectively storing the incoming monitoring device data in the compressed format on a storage medium;
