log retention days

L2 Linker

Hi we have 2 panorama and it has virtual disks for log-collector.

 

 

I have checked log-collector-es-cluster health and it is green.

 

 

1 collector-group and 2 log-collectors 

 

When i run cli

show system logdb-quota at the active panorama , i get result as below

 

How can I understand expiration-period is 30 days , but I can't see more than 16 days 

 

Is it disk volume issue ? IMHO , it looks overwrite traffic log older than 16 days

Hey there,

 

Quotas:
detailed: 60.00%, 282 GB Expiration-period: 30 days
...

Disk usage:
detailed: Logs: 137161 MB, Current Retention: 14 days

 

Here "Expiration-period: 30 days" means the Max Day set fort the specific kind of log  ”detailed logs“ is 30 days, if a detailed log is older than 30 days, Panorama deletes it. If you don't set a "Max Day", then Panorama only deletes the old logs when the disk is full and new logs must be written. “Current Retention: 14 days” means the oldest detailed logs on the disk is 14 days old.


If the device is working fine, wait for a few moredays and you should be able to see "Expiration-period: 30 days" and also “Current Retention: 30 days”

/dev/sdd1 1.7T 903G 749G 55% /opt/panlogs/ld3
/dev/sdc1 1.7T 904G 748G 55% /opt/panlogs/ld2

Then seems the device is not working as expected, maybe you can open a case to PA support.

I had submitted case , but they couldn't give me an answer.

 

I have the same issue.  Panorama 10.1.5 accepting logs from a number of gateways (most being 9.1.13).  Threat log allocation, for example, is 64GB. Expiration Period is 90 days.  However the logdb-usage command lists 'Current Retention' as 12 days.   64GB should be enough for millions of log entries allowing for at least 90 days.    If i export the entire 12 days of threat logs, that is only 80,000 entries.

 

The PA tech i spoke with suspects the allocated space is clogged up with indexes rather than with actual logs. However he is not yet sure how to check.
