VMWare vSphere 5 Task Console

What determines how far back/how many tasks are retained for viewing when you go to Task Console?  At present it seems I have some kind of default of five days or so.  I would like to crank that up to more like 30 days.  Thank you.

This is fixed by vSphere Hypervisor or vCenter if using.

We have a vCenter server at say address 10.10.10.7.  If I point my browser to 10.10.10.7 I am presented with a vSphere web client login.  When I log in I can see tasks and events but they don't go back very far.  I have read that I can go onto vcenter server itself  or the ESX servers and go through /etc/logs.  But surely there has to be a way to scroll back further than just a few days via the web client.  No??

I do not believe so, logon using vSphere Client and check events and tasks.

It is what is it.  Perhaps there is a log file on the vCenter server I could view manually?

all stored in the vCenter SQL database.
