Retaining old log file instances

PATROL KM for Log Management allows you to specify the number of old log instances to retain and perform an action when a monitored log instance is deleted.

To specify product configuration for old instances

  1. Access the LOG application menu as described in Accessing Menu Commands, InfoBoxes, and Online Help.
  2. Select Product Configuration.
  3. In the Product Configuration dialog box, enter the number of old log instances that you want to retain, plus 1 for the latest log instance. By default, the value in the Number of Old Instances text box is 1, which refers to the the latest log instance retained.
  4. Select an action that you want the KM to take when a monitored log is deleted. By default, the KM generates an alarm when a monitored text log is deleted.
