Meanwhile, please answer the following question below for further checking:

 

  1. Have you made any recent changes or is it a new issue? – notice this issue was quite sometimes
  2. Can you give us the picture error of the issue? – There no error, just the days is lower than fw2, need help to check why this behavior
  3. When did this issue happen? – unsure

Hello Noor_sofia,

 

I don't know if the techsupport files are shared on purpose or not.
Usually, it is something usable by TAC. 
Sharing it here is just exposing your firewalls configuration to a public forum.
The password is encrypted, but a bad actor would be able to trace back to your organisation.

 

Regarding the query : if the FW2 is the passive, it may be normal.
The current retention is a calculated estimation of the retention based on the amount of traffic (the more session you have, the more logs are generated), and the disk space.
