Default Re: Log retention periods

If you go into Blackberry Solution Topology>Blackberry Domain>Component View>Logging>yourserver and click on the Logging tab, you can set the time in days that the BES retains most of the logs (maximum age).

As I understand it though you cannot set a maximum age for the SMS, call or PIN logs, along with the MDS (MDAT) logs.

What this means is that you can set all of the debug logs to have a maximum age of, say, 30 days, and the logs you're interested in will still stay forever.

We have a scheduled tasks that deletes these "indefinite" logs after 6 months.

EDIT: this is assuming you're using BES 5. I believe you can do the same with BES 4 but I can't give you details for that.
