This article provides information about FSM log file requirements for report generation.


All FSM versions


In Firewall Security Manager (FSM), the device configuration details are stored in the FSM database.

Some of the reports like Profiler Summary Report need to show the latest config changes of the selected device, which may not be available in the FSM database. The Rule Object Cleanup Report also requires the log file, if you need the log usage analysis as part of the report. The latest device configuration changes and the usage details will be available only in the log file. To run these reports, you need to provide the latest log file of the selected device.
