Historical log cleanup

Matt White Jun 08, 2018 10:29AM PDT

I have the Sophos reporting importing historical logs. The logs themselves take up a lot of space. How do I know when the import is done so these can be removed?

I do not see any progress bar that shows which files may or may not have been processed.

Thanks for getting in touch about this.

Unfortunatley we don't have progress bars for each individual log, but if you go to *Settings | Data Storage* you will see the amount data imported for each date. Take a look at the dates that correspond to the dates in the log files. Hover over the bars to see the number of records and size. If these are not increasing, then the log data has finished importing.

Also, when Fastvue Reporter is importing historical logs, the 'records per second' shown in *Settings | Sources* will increase quite dramatically (into the 10's of thousands). Once complete, the records per second will drop back down to the usual number of records received via syslog, which will vary based on your network size, but usually in the 10's or hundreds (maybe in the thousands for larger networks).

I hope this helps. Let me know how you go!
