Archive file should be kept for at least 10 days, and there should be kept at 
least 15 archive files.

So in better example:

If you have i.e. many files generated daily - this makes sure you should have 
files at least 10 days back as well  (otherwise it could happen you could have 
backup only from last few recent commands)

If you run lvm2 modifying commands very occasionally - you should still have 
at least 15 historical archives  (otherwise it could happen you could have 
very few archives if any....)

As you can see both are 'arming' at slightly different work flow.
