Customizing log management settings for remote clients

You may want to customize the log management settings for remote clients. Customization can be especially useful if clients are offline for several days.

The following settings can help reduce bandwidth and the load on your management servers:

  • Clients do not upload their logs to the management server.

  • Clients upload only the client security logs.

  • Filter log events to upload only specified events.

    Suggested events to upload include definition updates, or side effect repair failures.

  • Make the log retention time longer.

    Longer retention times let you review more antivirus and antispyware event data.


Some client log settings are specific to a group. Location-specific log settings are part of a Virus and Spyware Protection policy. Depending on the log settings that you want to customize, you may need to use groups instead of locations to manage your remote clients.
