How can I keep seven years of logs?
Here are three possible solutions:
- Keep seven years of Iguana logs:
- Keep 60 days of Iguana logs and export and/or back them up regularly:
Tip: If you use backup software to “copy” the files you may need to restore the files before you can view them (we suggest restoring to an alternate location, rather than directly to the Iguana default log directory). Then you can set a development/test Iguana Server to (temporarily) use that directory for logs so you can view them for investigation purposes(do not do this on a production server). An advantage of this approach is that it can easily be combined with your Iguana backup and restore routine.
