View Reports

The firewall provides an assortment of over 40 predefined reports that it generates every day. You can view these reports directly on the firewall. You can also view custom reports and summary reports.
About 200 MB of storage is allocated for saving reports on the firewall. You can’t configure this limit but you can Configure the Expiration Period and Run Time for Reports to allow the firewall to delete reports that exceed the period. Keep in mind that when the firewall reaches its storage limit, it automatically deletes older reports to create space even if you don’t set an expiration period. Another way to conserve system resources on the firewall is to Disable Predefined Reports. For long-term retention of reports, you can export the reports (as described below) or Schedule Reports for Email Delivery.
Unlike other reports, you can’t save User/Group Activity reports on the firewall. You must Generate User/Group Activity Reports on demand or schedule them for email delivery.
