Audit Log User Guide for VSP E Series

Part Number

A log file provides historical data on user operations performed on the storage system as well as program behaviors resulted from the operations. It reveals who did what to the storage system and it can be a helpful tool for investigating problems or conducting non-technical departmental audits.

Depending on the types of logs, collected logs are stored in either the SVP or the storage system. In order to access the collected logs, the storage system must be configured to transfer logs to syslog servers. Once configured, logs are automatically transferred to the syslog servers from the storage system or the SVP.

Note: The SVP's log storage capacity is limited. When the stored logs reaches the maximum capacity, the SVP overwrites the oldest data with the newest data. It is recommended to transfer audit logs to syslog servers.

The stored audit logs can be transferred to a syslog server.
