Log Archive

Overview

The temporarily stored logs on the CloudCenter Suite server are automatically purged on a regular basis. This log file location is not configurable from the CloudCenter Suite.

To store logs for a longer period, you can configure an archive location for your AWS S3 region – if you configure an archive location for your AWS S3 region, the CloudCenter Suite logs can also be saved to the AWS S3 region besides the temporary location on the CloudCenter Suite server. If so, you can enable the archive of log files from the Suite Admin UI to the AWS S3 region using the S3 bucket name and AWS credentials.

Requirements

You should have already configured the AWS S3 region. Refer to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/ServerLogs.html for details.

Each zip file saved in the S3 bucket is assigned a numeric value and saved with a time stamp.

Process

To enable log archives, follow this process.

  1. Navigate to the Suite Admin Dashboard > Admin.

  2. Click Log Archive in the left tree pane to display the Log Archive page as displayed in the following screenshot.

  3. Toggle the Enable Logs Archive switch to enable (disabled by default) the archive of log files.

  4. Configure the AWS Region, S3 Bucket, AWS Access Key ID, and AWS Secret Key Access details.

  5. Click Connect to save your changes as displayed in the following screenshot.

    Once connected, the CloudCenter Suite logs are collected in the configured S3 bucket as displayed in the following screenshot.

Disabling Log Archives

You can disable the log archives at any time by toggling the Enable Logs Archive switch and confirming your actions in the resulting popup. Disabling the configuration will only save future logs to the temporary CloudCenter Suite location where they are automatically purged.
