Adjusting the Log Size and Rotate Options
CLI: Access the command line interface (CLI). You can do this using the CLI button in the GUI or by using a program such as PuTTY.
The EdgeRouter is automatically set up to rotate the log messages. The default log options can be viewed by running the below command:
invoke-rc.d rsyslog reload >/dev/null
NOTE: It is recommended to set up a remote syslog server over increasing the log size + files when extensive logging is needed.
Modify the log options by running the commands below:
set system syslog global archive files <nr>
set system syslog global archive size <kbytes>
