Viewing Old Event Logs

Dashboard can maintain event logs for up three months, which can be viewed for historical purposes.

To view logs older than 30 days:

  1. Navigate to Network-wide > Monitor > Event log.
  2. Click in the Before fields and specify a date and time.
  3. Once the date and time have been selected, click the Search button to begin the search.
    Note: You cannot download more than 30 events at a time (when using the export function).

Note: Event logs are tied to the Dashboard network, not stored locally on the device. As such, swapping devices will not affect the event log, but moving devices to a new network will cause their device logs to be cleared.

if a complete historical log is necessary, implementing a syslog server is recommended to maintain logs as long as needed.
