Log storage and resources usage

L1 Bithead

Hi everyone!


How much space do the cortex xdr agent records use? I understand that in the agent profile configurations you can set the quota for log storage, by decreasing the quota the logs are automatically purged ??, for the last one on my machine local that has the cortex agent in which folder are the logs stored to see the accumulated to date ??.


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Marcelo_Campos-


The amount of space used varies.  There are no signature files which take up space.  The agent setting sets the maximum amount allowed -- then it is first in first out.  Most of the consumption will be found in c:\programdata\cyvera
