I want to configure the log file of firewall or web proxy to keep the log to 1 year (365 days). Am I correct if I go to Monitoring -> Logging -> task pane and click on relevant log link -> Option and put 365 into the check box Delete file older than (days)?

Thank,
Kanel

Yep, but make sure you have enough storage space and the "limit total size..." or "maintain free disk..." don't delete data before the 365 days limit occurs.

Alternatively, log to SQL Server and then maintain the logging yourself...

Cheers

JJ

Thank you for your explanation. And what is happen if I clear the check box of Delete file older than xx (days)?

Thank,

Logging will continue until it reaches the size limits defined; if these are disabed too, logging will continue until disk space is exhausted...
