Check when a log file was deleted on NSA 3650


I noticed the log files on the sonicwall NSA 3650 firewall are missing for a whole month.

How can I trace if the log files were deleted? Any insight is appreciated.

    There is limited memory on the firewall itself to store logs, hence it is best to have a syslog server or Analytics to send those logs to. Once that buffer is full, new logs are stored deleting the older ones.

    So, are you seeing those missing logs on the firewall or any of these monitoring tools?

    The auditing logs should show if someone cleared the logs manually on the firewall.
