Viewing Old Event Logs

Table of contents
No headers

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: 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.
