The local log is a datastore hosted on the FortiADC system.
Typically, you use the local log to capture information about system health and system administration activities. We recommend that you use local logging during evaluation and verification of your initial deployment, and then configure remote logging to send logs to a log management repository where they can be stored long term and analyzed using preferred analytic tools.
Local log disk settings are configurable. You can select a subset of system events, traffic, and security logs.
Before you begin:
- You must have Read-Write permission for Log & Report settings.
To configure local log settings:
- Go to Log & Report > Log Setting.
- Complete the configuration as described in Local logging configuration.
- Save the configuration.
The configuration page displays the Local Log tab.
