Application-level events from the service can be exported to an external syslog server. Operating system events are not exported.

Since most companies do not have unlimited disk space, the virtual appliance does not save the complete logging history. If you want to save more history or create a centralized location for your logging history, you can set up an external syslog server.

If you do not configure a syslog server during the initial configuration, you can configure it later from the application configuration Application Settings > Manage Configuration > Syslog Configuration page.

Set up an external syslog server. You can use any of the standard syslog servers available. Several syslog servers include advanced search capabilities.
