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
    Settings
    Agent
    Settings
    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 this step to add more conditions, as needed. You can also define new Conditions.
  4. (
    Optional
    ) Define the Target Objects to which to apply the rule.
    To define a smaller subset of target objects, select the
    Objects
    tab, and then enter one or more
    AD Users
    ,
    AD Computers
    ,
    AD Groups
    ,
    AD Organizational Unit
    ,
    Existing Endpoints
    , or
    Existing Groups
    in the Include or Exclude areas. The Endpoint Security Manager queries Active Directory to verify the users, computers, groups, or organizational units. The ESM Console also offers autocompletion as you type for existing endpoints and existing virtual groups.
  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
      Settings
      Agent
      Settings
      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.
