Foward traffic log entries limited to 150 only

Hi,

 

I have a 80c runing 5.2.10 with 3 vdoms(2 NAT & 1 transp) and I enabled log to memory to solve a problem on my network, but when I go to forward traffic I can only see a limited number of entries, it keeps showing around 150, sometimes 149 or 151 as I refresh the page.

 

I couldn't  find any information on the internet regarding memory log quota about entries, please if someone can help

Hello,

Basically logging to memory is limited on this device and when the quota is full it will replaces the old logs with the new ones.

Check the following document (page 25):

http://docs.fortinet.com/uploaded/files/2180/fortigate-loggingreporting-52.pdf

So if you enabled logging for traffic/web filter/application control ...etc, this will fill up the memory quickly and old logs will be replaced in few seconds.

The best is to use either FortiCloud or FortiAnalyzer.

Also you can send logs to Syslog server. CLI configuration:

config log syslog setting

set status enable

set ?

 

Notes:

1) Memory logging quota is not configurable on this device

2) Disk logging is available on FGT100D and larger

 

Regards,
