This topic introduces the features of the System Logging > Settings tab.

The RSA Security Analytics Settings tab in the System Logging panel configures the size of the log files, the number of backup log files maintained, as well as the default logging levels for the packages within Security Analytics. The Configure Log File Settings topic in the System Configuration Guide provides detailed procedures.

To access the Settings tab:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > System.
  2. In the options panel, select System Logging.
    The System Logging panel opens to the Realtime tab by default.
  3. Click the Settings tab.



The Settings tab has two sections: Log Settings and Package Configuration.

Log Settings

The Log Settings section configures the size of the Security Analytics log files and the number of backup logs that Security Analytics maintains.
