Strata Logging Service
For Cloud NGFW for AWS resources,
Strata Logging Service
dynamically allocates total storage based on usage. That is why you may see your total amount of storage changing if you use Cloud NGFW for AWS.
To store logs in
Strata Logging Service
, you must set the log storage quota (the amount of storage allocated for each log type). Some log sources automatically allocate storage at activation. Other sources require you to set quota to a value greater than 0 before
Strata Logging Service
will store their logs.
After you activate a new app or service that sends data to
Strata Logging Service
, verify that the quota manager has storage allocated for it. When the log storage quota is not configured,
Strata Logging Service
saves logs in any unallocated space.
After you allocate log storage quota, view your actual storage utilization under
STATUS
.
  1. Sign In
    to the hub.
    To view the
    Strata Logging Service
    app, you must have the correct user role. Learn more about app roles and how to assign them.
    To access
    Strata Logging Service
    in
    Strata Cloud Manager
    , click
    Strata Cloud Manager
    app from hub and select
    Settings
    Strata Logging Service
    .
  2. Select the
    Strata Logging Service
    instance for which you want to allocate log storage quota.
    If you have multiple
    Strata Logging Service
    instances, click the
    Strata Logging Service
    tile and select the instance from the drop-down of available instances associated with your account.
  3. In your
    Strata Logging Service
    instance, select
    CONFIGURATION
    .
    In
    Strata Cloud Manager
    , click
    Settings
    Strata Logging Service
    Configure Quota
    .
  4. Adjust the storage allocated for each log type.
    Field
    Value
    QUOTA (%)
    (
    Optional
    ) The percentage of your total
    Strata Logging Service
    capacity that you want to allocate for each log type.
    Setting
    QUOTA
    for a log type to 0% means that
    Strata Logging Service
    does not store the logs. If you reset
    QUOTA
    to 0%, all existing logs will be deleted.
    Leave this field blank to allocate all remaining storage to a log type. If you leave this field blank for multiple log types, they all share the remaining unallocated storage. When no more unallocated storage remains,
    Strata Logging Service
    deletes the oldest logs among the log types with this field empty.
    ALLOCATED SIZE
    (
    Read-only
    ) The amount of log storage space allocated for each log type in KB, MB, GB, or TB.
    MAX RETENTION DAYS
    (
    Optional
    ) The number of days that
    Strata Logging Service
    retains logs. Set this value only if you have a company or regulatory retention policy that requires you to delete logs after a given time period. If you leave this field blank,
    Strata Logging Service
    will not delete logs until the available storage space runs out.
    When a log type reaches its max retention days,
    Strata Logging Service
    deletes the oldest logs of that type.
    Setting
    MAX RETENTION DAYS
    for a log type to 0 means that
    Strata Logging Service
    does not store the logs. If you set
    MAX RETENTION DAYS
    to 0, all existing logs will be deleted.
    ACTUAL RETENTION DAYS
    (
    Read-only
    ) The number of days that logs have been stored in
    Strata Logging Service
    . Logs are rolled over when the max days is reached or the available storage space runs out. Use this information to learn about the current utilization of
    Strata Logging Service
    or which logs it has retained the longest and assess if you need to reallocate quota to meet your log retention policy.
    You can toggle whether to store or ingest log data from individual firewalls in the
    Inventory
    tab.

    your changes.
