Remote Log File Archives

On the Logging & Reporting > Log Settings > Remote Log File Archives tab you can make the settings for remote archiving of log files. If remote log file archiving is enabled, the log files of the past day are packed and compressed into one file, which is transferred to a remote log file storage. Using the drop-down list you can select your preferred transfer method.

To configure a remote log file archive, proceed as follows:

  1. Enable the Remote Log File Archives function.

    Click the toggle switch.

    The toggle switch turns amber and the Remote Log File Archive area becomes editable.

  2. Select the log file archiving method.

    From the drop-down list, select your preferred archiving method. Depending on your selection, the related configuration options for each archiving method will be displayed below. You can choose between the following archiving methods:

  3. Click Apply.

    Your settings will be saved.

    The toggle switch turns green.

If the transfer fails, the archive will remain on Sophos UTM. During each run of the log cleaning process, Sophos UTM tries to deliver all remaining archives.
