In Console not viewing past logs.

Jump to solution

Due to audit issues I had to load logs from past months in the Firewall console, when trying to view it and it does not show me any logs in the console.

Check and I have space in var / log.

After importing the logs to the console, I installed database and restart services, but I still can't see the logs.


Is there another tool with which I can see the log files that I have backed up from previous months?

You have to index those logs in order for the log entries to show up in SmartConsole's log viewer.  Take a look at sk111766.

Ah, one word of caution though: If you restored a lot of log files, be prepared for the log indexer and SOLR java program to take a lot of CPU time on your management system.  After upgrading to R80.40 and copying my old logs from the old R80.20 management system, the log indexer took 2-3 CPUs and the SOLR java program took 12-18 CPUs for a few days until the indexing finished.  I re-indexed the last 180 days of logs, so you might not be in the same boat...  My management system has 28 CPUs, so it wasn't a big deal for us.

Thanks for the recommendation, in the next few months I will be upgrade the firewall version and I will take it into account.
