Retention period for traffic logs on Panorama

L4 Transporter

Hello Experts


What is the rention period for traffic logs on Panorama, I mean how many days it will keep the traffic logs from firewall. Actually I need to do the harden the security rules by looking the traffic logs.


@reaper Thanks. I am using virtual applicance, in this case can I use the log collectors?

yes you can, log collectors are supported both on the physical and virtual panorama


You can increase log capacity of the virtual appliance to 2TB by mounting an NFS volume for example, if that is enough capacity for your needs

Hi @reaper,


At what time duration this timers will get refreshed, Let say current retention period is 180 days and how long it will take to change the retention period if the log volume is high.
