Move log files



  • Looking for some advice on how to move the log files from the 8GB internal drive on our SG-3100 to the 32GB SSD that is also installed.  Doing so to increase firewall log sizes. Thanks.

    The supported solution there is to backup your config, re-install to the SSD and restore the config. Then you can increase the log file sizes significantly.

    Running two disks (other than as a mirror) is not a supported configuration but it can be done. You need to mount the other drive at boot. fstab may be overwritten. If you use the syslog-ng package you can specify the log location and then export the logs to it from the logging settings.

    I'd choose option 1 though.  ;)
