Log forwarding enhancement 7.0.1

With this feature enhancement, FortiAnalyzer log-forward-cache-size can set more than 80% system reserved space helping to prevent log loss.

When the cache is full, the latest logs are kept and older logs are dropped.

To configure the log forward cache size:
  1. In the FortiAnalyzer CLI, enter the following commands to set the log forward cache size.
    In the following example, the cache size is set to 2000.

    config system global

    set log-forward-cache-size 2000

    Log-forward disk cache will be allocated from available disk quota and reserved space.

    All logs currently in log-forward disk cache will be dropped.

    Do you want to continue? (y/n)

  2. In the CLI, enter the following command to see space usage:

    diagnose log device
