History of events
i have a 800xA running system, and i need events/alarms from a year ago. Unfortunately, i cannot get any event list for more then 3 months.
Is there a setting i can change?
What could the reasons be for this?
the only setting I know is number of Alarms, which you can set in the Service Group of Alarm Manager in the Service Structure.
The normal solution we have when you want to store a lot of events, is to install a Information Manager (IM) as an application server, which can store up to 12 million events.
Agree with Ronny.
- OOB setting is 10.000 events per category are retained by Event Storage service in base system.
- Event Storage service settings may be modified to permit storage up to 50.000 events per category.
- With an IM Message Log up to 12.000.000 events can be stored*
*1) Retrieval is not seamless and require dedicated event list & setting compared to base system's event lists.
*2) Even a 12M storage may wrap in less than a year if A&E emission is voluminous. Suggest implementing storage filter to avoid eg noisy system/hardware event categories to give way for more important process event categories.
