Transferring and downloading audit logs

Storage Advisor Embedded User Guide

Part Number

Audit log provides information about the use of the storage system, which can help in identifying and diagnosing potential problems.

An audit log file contains information such as a user who performed an operation in the storage system and the operation result. To obtain or view the log stored in a storage system, transfer the log to a syslog server or download the log to your PC. You can transfer the log automatically to the syslog server when information is logged. If you want to download the log manually, use the Export Audit Log in the maintenance utility.

The capacity for audit logs that can be stored in the storage system is limited. When the stored audit logs reaches the maximum capacity, the oldest data is lost as it is overwritten by the newest data. This can be avoided by transferring audit logs to syslog servers.
