Server Log Files
By default, the system maintains a maximum of 26 Server log files with a maximum size of 10MB per file (log_file.log to log_file025.log). Only logs that are located in log_file.log will be shown in the log section of the Web Interface.
All log files are located in the following locations:
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Network Optix\Network Optix Media Server\log\
Audit Trail, Bookmarks, and Event Log
These logs are located in mserver.sqlite and are limited to 183 days (audit trail) and 30 days (event log) or 100,000 events by default. This limitation can be changed in the Server config. Bookmarks follow the archive. So if you have 30 days of archive footage, you will have 30 days of Bookmarks.

Is it possible to change and extend the server config, audit and event logs at first install (prior to adding any cameras) to prevent db corruption?
Hi Steven Voisin,
My apologies for the delay.
There are options of changing these values manually but for the reasons mentioned in the article it isn't recommended. What you should do is disabling the autodiscovery during the initial setup of Nx Witness system through the Advanced Setting option during the initial setup in that way we can modify the numbers if we have access to the WebAdmin of the system.
