Dimension Log

Log store for how long? Depending on disk capacity? How big capacity we need to prepare for 1 month log been store.

    It depends on how much logging you are doing from your firewall.
    The more you log, the more storage that you need.

    Log storage varies wildly depending on how much traffic your firewall sees and how much diagnostic data you're logging. The link @xxup posted is a good starting point.

    Whatever you end up going with, I'd suggest provisioning at least 20% more for wiggle room.

    Hello RZX,

    "...Log store for how long? Depending on disk capacity? ...."
    By default yes. Disk size - 20% = log/report data storage. Dimension
    will fill this space up to 95% then will start to FiFo data.

    You can control data retention by days from Server Management / General / Database size.
