Managing the logs

About this task

The Other Logs page lists some default logs, such as audit, cleanup, license, login audit, and user audit. Each of these logs contains information for different purposes.

You can manage the default logs on this page with several actions.


  1. Click Settings > Logging > Other Logs.
  2. Edit a log from the actions cloumn.
    The Edit Log window allows you to edit the following information:
    • The rotation type of the log file, such as hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or with respect to size
    • The number of files to generate
    • The maximum size of log files
    • The enablement status of the log
    • Add or delete loggers

    The New Log feature allows you to send log data to a specific file. It is the Log4j 2.x implementation of Log4j 1.x appenders as used in v7.2.2 and earlier versions.

  4. Delete a custom log.
