    Today the logifile are keept for one month and if you need to keep it you have to create a SYSLOG server.

    I would like to have the possibility to modify this time to 2,3, 4 or even 12 month and with a circular logging.. Another way is to deliver a open source SYSLOG server as a part of the appliance.

    Regards

    The next major version of the Filetransfer appliance will extend this to 3 months. Beyond that, you will need a syslog server.

    The reason is simple. The Filetransfer appliance is built to be self administrating. If we didn't delete data, it would eventually run out of disk space and the Admin -> System Log would become very slow. There's already is a syslog server with the Filetransfer appliance. That's how things like system messages, email logs and so in is captured in inserted in the database for viewing in the Admin -> System Log view.

    This is an architectural decision, not a technical limitation (well, the speed of the interface would be a technical limitation :)
