I have question about logs are in internal database.
If I disable the archive job, are the logs stored in internal database and never deleted?
If it's deleted, how long are they stored?
Stored forever until system crashes at 99% full disk. Only deleted from database if you have archive and delete settings enabled. The best idea is a) make database backups on a regular basis (logs can be stored in backups) b) send logs to syslog server c) set archive and delete options to what you feel is reasonable for running reports in the security console.
