Set LA storage and search retention period

On the Log and Event Settings page, you can set the number of days that syslog and trap messages are stored and searchable in the LA database. The default setting is seven days, but you can adjust it to anywhere from one day to one year.

  1. In the Orion Web Console, navigate to Settings > All Settings.
  2. Scroll down to Product Specific Settings and click Log and Event Settings.
  3. On the Log Management tab, Enter the total number of days to keep syslog, traps, Windows events, and VMware events, and then click Save.*

The Log and Event Settings page also provides links to log processing rules, unmanaged log senders, managed but unlicensed log senders, and log monitoring options.

*The available options will vary based on the Orion Platform products you have installed.
