Managing System Logs

System logs provide a valuable record of the events occurring within your SOTI MobiControl deployment. SOTI MobiControl tracks events for all of its components including the database, the management service, the deployment server, and the deployment server extensions.

System logs are stored in the SOTI MobiControl database. Depending on your logging level verbosity, log data can quickly overwhelm your database. To keep your database functioning optimally, you can set data truncation instructions that reduce the space occupied by system logs. You can also archive your truncated data to save it in another location for future reference.

SOTI MobiControl performs data truncation during nightly maintenance, which occurs at midnight local time of the management service. However, the management service determines which log records to truncate based on their UTC time stamp.
