I haven't used LinuxShield for a while but perhaps you can try VirusScan for Linux 1.6. I think you can find more interesting logs there
Ok so I found part of the answer myself by opening the gui web interface on the linux clients on port 55443 which offers system events which provide all the details for client task events.
I would still like to know if anyone can tell me where in the linux file system i might find the raw data for this in the logs. Im assuming it would be somewhere in var\log but not sure where. If anyone might know where i could find the summary scan task information on a linux box in the logs that would be much appreciated.
