What is the retention period for Nx Witness log files?
- System Logs
- Audit Trail logs
- Event Logs
Is there a way for users to modify how long log files are retained?
By default the system maintains a maximum of 26 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 logs are located in the following locations (depending on the OS)
- Windows - C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Network Optix\Network Optix Media Server\log\
- Linux - /opt/networkoptix/mediaserver/var/logs
Audit Trail logs and Event log
These logs are located in mserver.sqlite and are limited to 30 days. This limitation cannot be changed in the Server config because any corruption of the database could result in the loss of all Audit Trail and Event log.
Bookmarks follow the archive. So if you have 30 days of archive you will have 30 days of Bookmarks. We plan on introducing the ability to mark Bookmarks for long-term archiving (no overwriting) in v3.1.
