Hi,
I have an ASA that has no syslogging setup as yet. Despite this, I can go in and look at top usage stats for the last 24 hours on the Firewall dashboard.
Where does the ASA hold the logs for these stats?
If I go to logging to look at the buffer, it only seems to hold logs for the previous 30 seconds.
What I need is to be a ble to look at the raw logs that produce these stats.

Thanks.
I know how to setup logging, but I'm wondering where are the top usage stats pulled from?
