Range of logs stored on PA-4050 appliance

Hi All,

How do I find out the date range of the logs still be stored on an appliance?

If its FIFO Id like to know how far back the current logs on the box go back.

"show system logdb-quota" will tell me what space is being used and by what,

but not when it starts and ends.

Hi...You can query each log database to see how far back the log is stored via the CLI.

For example, here's an output of the threat log showing the oldest threat entry is 2010/09/06 10:51:23.

vnguyen@ca1demo> show log threat
