The Log History page determines the number of days to store log data in the database on a per log basis for each machine ID. Log data is displayed using Agent Logs or printed to a report using Info Center > Reporting > Logs. This page also determines whether agent log data is subsequently archived to text files located on a network directory. The directory is specified using System > Configure. Changes made using this page take effect at the next agent check-in and display in red text until then.
