To register a logger click on the option "Create Logger" in the upper right corner of the screen, the following window will be displayed:
Loggers – Create Logger Device
This window is divided into two tabs that can be accessed on the left side:
In addition, the Archiving tab has the panels:
Next we will analyze the components of the Settings tab:
This panel has the function of determining the settings of the Logger. To do so, configure the form according to the instructions below:
Create Logger Device - Settings
- Name: Determines the name of the Logger to be registered. Ex.: Logger 1;
- Mode: Defines how the Logger will operate. It can be:
- Description: The description of the logger is basically for organizational purposes;
- Interface: Defines the interface that will be used to access this logger;
- Address: Determines the IP address that will be used to access this logger. In addition, if the logger H.A. has been configured, the address defined in this field will be used in the heartbeat, for more information, see this page. Ex.: 10.0.0.1;
- Secret Key: Determines the secret key issued by the UTM. It needs to be pasted in full for the Logger to work. In addition, if the logger H.A. has been configured, the key (ssh) defined in this field will be used in the heartbeat, for more information, see this page;
- Devices & Devices Group: It is a checkbox that allows the location of the devices or groups of devices that the logger will use to create reports. Click [ ] to add them or [ ] to remove them.
This completes the configuration of the logger.
Next we will analyze how to configure Logger Backups:
In this interface, the administrator has the necessary resources to manage the automatic backup routines for each Logger device that is created and to configure their retention.
Create Logger Device - Backups
This screen is divided into two panels:
Next, we will analyze each of the components of this window:
In this panel are the settings that allow you to create an automated backup routine for each Logger.
Archiving - Backups
- Enable [; ]: Enables the backup of Loggers
- Remote Storage: Defines the location where the backups will be stored, the items that appear in this list are created in the Storages tab in the System menu, for more information on this, see this page. Ex.: Backup;
- Number of backup retention: Determines how many backups will be stored, if this limit is exceeded, the oldest backups will be replaced;
- % Disk usage retention: Defines how much disk should be used in storage to save the backup. Upon reaching the limit, the backup is not performed. Ex.: 15.
This finalizes the configuration of the logger backup panel.
Next we will analyze how to configure the Log Rotation panel.
In this panel are the settings that determine the retention of the logs stored by the Analyzer for each Logger.
Archiving - Log Rotation
- Enable [; ]: Enables retention of logs
- % Log retention by disk space: Determines the log retention limit by percentage of disk space. The default value is: 70%; The maximum is: 90%.
- Log retention by period: Defines the log retention period, the first field determines the number of days, months and years, while the second field defines the period itself, the available options are:
- Unlimited: Disables the first field and defines that the retention of the logs will be unlimited.
- Days: Defines that the logs will be retained on certain days;
- Months: Defines that the logs will be retained in certain months;
- Years: Defines that the logs will be retained annually.
- Maintenance Interval: Defines the maintenance time of the logs, the first field determines the number of minutes and hours, while the second field defines the period itself, the available options are:
- Minutes: Disables the first field and defines that the retention of the logs will be unlimited;
- Horas: Defines that the logs will be retained on certain days.
This completes the configuration of the Log Rotation panel.
