Define Event Logging Preferences

Traps stores event information and quarantined files in a temporary local storage folder. To adjust the size of the disk quota, configure an agent settings rule:
  1. Create a new agent settings rule.
    Select SettingsAgentSettings and then Add a new rule.
  2. Define the event logging settings for the endpoints.
    1. Select Event Logging.
    2. Select Set disk quota (MB) and specify the size of the temporary local storage folder that Traps will use to store event logs and quarantined files. Specify the quota amount in MB (default is 5,120; range is 0 to 10,000,000). After the storage folder reaches the size quota, Traps purges the event logs by deleting the oldest logs first to make room for new logs.
  3. (Optional) Add Conditions to the rule. By default, a new rule does not contain any conditions.
    To specify a condition, select the Conditions tab, select the condition in the Conditions list, and then Add it to the Selected Conditions list. Repeat to add more conditions as needed. To add a condition to the Conditions list, see Define Activation Conditions for a Rule on Windows Endpoints or Define Activation Conditions for a Rule on Mac Endpoints.
  4. (Optional) Define the Target Objects to which to apply the agent settings rule. By default, a new rule applies to all objects in your organization.
    To define a subset of target objects, select the Objects tab, and then enter one or more Users, Computers, Groups, Organizational Unit, or Existing Endpoints in the Include or Exclude areas. The Endpoint Security Manager queries Active Directory to verify the users, computers, groups, or organizational units or identifies existing endpoints from previous communication messages.
  5. (Optional) Review the rule name and description. The ESM Console automatically generates the rule name and description based on the rule details but permits you to change these fields, if needed.
    To override the autogenerated name, select the Name tab, clear the Activate automatic description option, and then enter a rule name and description of your choice.
  6. Save the agent settings rule.
    Do either of the following:
    • Save the rule without activating it. This option is only available for inactive, cloned, or new rules. When you are ready to activate the rule, select the rule from the SettingsAgentSettings page and then click Activate.
    • Apply the rule to activate it immediately.
    After saving or applying a rule, you can return to the Settings page at any time to Delete or Deactivate the rule.
