Does pfsense store logs on the local disk if present, where would they, how can I configure how large they get and is there a neat little package to display them and search.
The logs are stored in a binary circular log format, and are found in /var/log
You can view them (and search some of them) via the GUI under Status > System Logs
The logs are reset at boot time, or when you manually clear them.
You can set how many lines are displayed in the GUI, but there is no easy way to control exactly how large each log file can be (it's hardcoded in the source, this should be fixed in 2.0 eventually)
