Stormshield Network Security firewalls log the activity of the various enabled services while they are running. Generated events (logs) are saved locally by default in audit log files on the hard disk or in SD memory cards for smaller appliances. They also appear in the web administration interface, displayed by theme, e.g., Network traffic, Alarms, Web, etc.

Logs allow you to check the firewall's activity or fix potential issues. Stormshield's technical support team also relies on such logs for troubleshooting where necessary.

In this document, you will learn how to look up and configure logs, as well as the best practices to adopt when storing and using them.
