DESCRIPTION: Changing the Number of Days Log Files Are Kept on the Appliance
By default, the Aventail appliance saves seven days' worth of log files. This article shows how to increase the amount of logging data kept on the appliance.
Warning Use the command line at your own risk, and always back up your configuration before performing hand edits. Aventail strongly recommends that users not comfortable with the "vi" command or the command line contact Aventail product support for assistance. Please see KB item #2500 for some suggestions on enabling SSH access to the appliance and getting onto the command line.
Using vi, edit /etc/cron.daily/weeklyprune.
Modify the following line in the file. Change "7" to however many days you wish: ((MAXDAYS = 7))
Save and close the file.
Use care when making this change: increasing the amount of logging data kept on the appliance can quickly fill up the hard drive of the appliance.
