Configuring Automatic Log Deletion Settings

The Log Maintenance screen provides two methods for deleting logs automatically:

  • By number of logs (minimum: 30,000, maximum: 1,000,000, default: 1,000,000)

  • By the age of logs (minimum: 1 day, maximum: 360 days, default: 90 days)

Purge offset specifies the number of logs Control Manager deletes when the number of logs for a log type reaches the maximum. The default purge setting is 1000 for all log types.

  1. Navigate to Logs > Log Maintenance.

    The Log Maintenance screen appears.

  2. Select the corresponding check box for the logs for which you want to configure settings.
  3. Specify the maximum number of logs that Control Manager retains in the Maximum Log Entries column.
  4. In Purge Offset, specify the number of logs Control Manager removes when the number of logs reaches the number specified in the Maximum Log Entries column.
  5. In Maximum Log Age, specify the age of logs that Control Manager deletes automatically.
  6. Click Save.
