    LOG size

    adeelm

      Hi,

       

           Can any one tell me what is the size of the logs that are sent between the ePO and McAfee agent.

       

      thanks

          Hi adeelm, this will depend on what events will upload a computer to ePO. The problem is that event log file are changing depending on the amount of events between every McAfee Agent upload.

           

          But if you want you can try to monitor file sizes under C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Events before being parsed.

            hi ulyses31, Thanks for the information. In the location "C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Events" I could not find any events. this folder was empty.

             

            Thanks

              If I'm right this folder will only have files when a computer uploads its logs but they will disappear when ePO's event parser reads them.

               

              Are you having trouble with network load because of these logs uploading to ePO server or is it just to know their size?

                It is for both the reasons. Because some times there is lot of data on the network. I want to know the size so that I can do something about it,,

                 

                Thanks

                  Well I've been testing this and the only way to see the logs and their sizes on the eposerver is to stop the McAfee EventParser service.

                   

                  Once stopped you'll see all logs sent by computers to the ePO server appearing in the events folder and they will stay here until you start the service again so you can see how many logs are stored there and their usual size

                   

                  Of course you won't see any new events on the console's threat log until you start again this service.

                    hi ulyses31, Thank you very much. that was great help from you. Now I will see the logs size as it is quite important for me...

                     

                    Thanks again.
