Firewall reporting storage by firewall model
The amount of storage that you can allocate depends on the firewall model.
Firewall reporting licensing is divided into two tiers:
- Central Firewall Reporting. Reporting on your firewall is free. However, if you do not buy any reporting licenses for a firewall, you have only a small amount of storage, which varies according to the firewall model. With this type of license, you can store data for up to seven days. After this, the oldest data is no longer stored. Data is deleted on a first-in, first-out basis.
- Advanced. If you do buy reporting licenses, you have more storage, which varies according to the firewall model. In addition, you can store data for up 365 days before it is deleted. There are two types of advanced license; regular and MSP.
In all cases, storage is limited by the max storage or max storage period, whichever is reached first.
