Enabling historic log collection in EventLog Analyzer

EventLog Analyzer collects all the logs present in the Windows Event Viewer (i.e., Windows Logs > Application, Security, System) when the historic log collection option is enabled.

To enable historic log collection, follow the steps below: 
  1. Navigate to Settings > Admin Settings > Product Settings > Enable Historic Log Collection.
    1. If EventLog Analyzer is down for a few days, the application collects all the logs from the Event Viewer when the server is restored, provided historic log collection is enabled.
    2. For agent-based log collection, the agent will collect all the logs available in the Event Viewer after the server is back online by default. 
  2. Navigate to Settings > Configuration > Manage Devices > Add Devices. Select the device, click the icon on the right to enable historic log collection, and click Add


Note: When you add a device to EventLog Analyzer for the first time and enable historic log collection, EventLog Analyzer collects all the logs available in the Event Viewer for the device.
