Setting the duration and level of logs

The amount of information logged and how long it is retained is controlled by the following NetBackup configuration parameters:

To set the duration and level for log files

  1. In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand NetBackup Management.

  2. Expand Host Properties.

  3. Select Master Server.

  4. In the right pane, select the master server and then click Actions > Properties.

  5. Select Clean-up.

  6. Enter the length of time to retain the NetBackup log files. This setting applies to all NetBackup logs, including but not limited to, the Vault logs.

    In the NetBackup Administration Console for UNIX, the field name is Keep Logs For.

    In the NetBackup Administration Console for Windows, the field name is Duration to Retain Logs.

  7. Select the Logging tab.

  8. Select the Vault Logging Level.

    The logging level corresponds to the bp.conf entry VAULT_VERBOSE = level on UNIX systems. If this value is not specified in the bp.conf entry, then the default verbose level is set to 5.
