i will put here what i found, tell me if you want a bug report on redmine
i don't have captive portal but squid log are reported here, the tab's name could be confusing
Advanced Log filter here have wrong name process would be Duration and Pid would be TTY, i understand the form is the same for every tab
if you click on PPPoe Logins / l2TP Logins you are moved to another tab instead of opening the log under
#1 already has a redmine entry: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/1375
#2 is known, not sure if I'll disable filtering for that or fix the search as I'm not certain it works properly.
#3 is on purpose -- those tabs are in both places (at least for now), and the auth tab is just a shortcut to the other.

Is it possible to change GUI Log Entries limit to 10000, now it's 2000?
Status / System Logs / Settings
there is the option
GUI Log Entries
It's limited to 2000.
it's not too difficult if you want to modify
change from 2000 to what you want
it will slow down the loading of the page with big value
maybe it was a limitation for clog ? but now that we have syslog there is any reason for that?
Yep, thanks, @kiokoman, sure I can change it, but I think if we already have global changes made by @jimp in logging subsystem, why not fine tune some hidden settings also, I mean officially, by Netgate, not by me.
BTW I've already tried 20000 and it works. Yes it's slower, but it's not critical.
indeed, we should listen to what @jimp think about this, i don't know what impact could that have for small netgate's device
you can always open a request on redmine
If user don't touch it, there is no impact by default, but I am not sure why it was limited.
It's limited because for some systems 2000 lines is a huge page. 10000 lines can become unusable.
But it could be limited via an 'are you sure?' style check box or similar I guess. Or just have a warning on the field.
I'm fairly sure that limit was a hold-over from the era when ALIX-level devices were more common. I'm not sure what the current limit should be, but 2000 seems small. The default should probably be 250-500 or so these days.
These should hopefully all be addressed by the commits I've pushed today.
Tested it now. good work as always !
i've messed up with squid and there is no log in the captive portal tab.
default line is now 2000
TTY / Duration match the log filter
is there any log about the initialization of pfsense ? i mean the part where the boot process end and pfsense start to configure the interfaces / create route etc etc
Status / System Logs / Settings
Reset Log Files
Clears all local log files and reinitializes them as empty logs. This also restarts the DHCP daemon. Use the Save button first if any setting changes have been made.
Does not work for all the logs,
affected logs still present after pushing reset button:
System -> OS Boot
Authentication -> OS User Events
Authentication -> OS Account Changes
individual "clear log" button work as expected
The DHCP log is definitely cleared, but you might not notice it because the daemon is restarted which immediately puts a bunch of log messages back into the file.
The others are not cleared because they are not maintained by syslog, so that function doesn't catch them. I can add them to the clear function specifically, though.
