Log settings are defined per-topology. In environments where multiple topologies are deployed, this can help to streamline troubleshooting by reducing debug logging to the affected topology.

Note

There are no additional hands-on steps that need to be taken before proceeding to the next section. The information below is intended to provide additional context on Log Settings.

Multiple discreet logging options are available:

  • Per-Request Policy - provides log settings for security policy processing. In Debug mode, this log facility produces an enormous amount of traffic, so it is recommended to only set Debug mode for troubleshooting. Otherwise the most appropriate setting is Error to log only error conditions.
  • FTP - specifically logs error conditions for the built-in FTP listener when FTP is selected among the additional protocols in the Interception Rule configuration. The most appropriate setting is Error to log only error conditions.
  • IMAP - specifically logs error conditions for the built-in IMAP listener when IMAP is selected among the additional protocols in the Interception Rule configuration. The most appropriate setting is Error to log only error conditions.
  • POP3 - specifically logs error conditions for the built-in POP3 listener when POP3 is selected among the additional protocols in the Interception Rule configuration. The most appropriate setting is Error to log only error conditions.
  • SMTP - specifically logs error conditions for the built-in SMTP listener when SMTP is selected among the additional protocols in the Interception Rule configuration. The most appropriate setting is Error to log only error conditions.
  • SSL Orchestrator Generic - provides log settings for generic SSLO processing. If Per-Request Policy logging is set to Error, and SSL Orchestrator Generic is set to Information, only the SSLO packet summary will be logged. Otherwise the most appropriate setting is Error to log only error conditions.
