Contributors netapp-driley

The set auditLog command configures the audit log settings.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to an individual E2800, E5700, EF600 or EF300 storage array. It does not operate on E2700 or E5600 storage arrays.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Security Admin role.


set auditLog (logLevel={all | writeOnly} |
    fullPolicy={overwrite | preventSystemAccess} |
    maxRecords=n | warningThreshold=n)


Parameter Description


Allows you to specify the level of logging. Valid choices are: all and writeOnly. The default value is writeOnly.


Allows you to specify the policy when the log is full. Valid choices are: overwrite and preventSystemAccess.


Allows the user to specify the maximum number of records to be stored where n is an integer starting at 30000 and ending at 50000.


Allows you to specify the percentage at which a warning alert will be sent to indicate that the audit log is nearing full when full policy is set to preventSystemAccess. Use integer values between 0 to 100. Setting this parameter to 0 (zero) disables the warning alerts.
