Summary

The IPS/TPS logs provide information on system events and traffic-related events triggered by the filters that are configured on the device. Each menu page also provides functions to manage the log files. Logs also indicate the interfaces through which administrators interacted with the system, such as the LSM, the CLI, or an SMS. The device maintains an historical log file and a current log file for each log.

When the current log file reaches the default size (4MB), the log is de-activated and saved as the historical file, and a new log file is started as the current log. If a historical file already exists, that file is deleted. When the log is rolled over, the system generates a message in the Audit log. If you want to save log data, create a backup or you can configure the system to offload log messages to a remote system log.
