We have a Watchguard XTM 520 with spamBLOCKER and Gateway AV enabled for email traffic. Is there a way to view log files associated with these services inside the web manager?

On the Firebox System Manager (FSM) Traffic Monitor tab, you see log messages from your XTM device as they occur. This include Subscription Services tab that has current Firebox or XTM device statistics about these subscription services such as the gateway AV and Spamblocker, if installed.

so far i do not see if native log type are pertaining to the details log of those services, but more of the statistic log that is mentioned above.  Ideally you should have a log server and configured to receive log e.g.  configure your Firebox or XTM device to generate log messages for events that occur at the device,

...  and view those log message from log server (via connect to WatchGuard WebCenter) onwards

For example for SpamBlocker, if you want to send a log message each time spamBlocker takes an action, select the Send a log message check box for the action. If you do not want to record log messages for an action, clear this check box.

For example for Gateway AV, it can have Enable debug log messages (not really recommendation to be enabled) for diagnostic messages in times of Technical Support requesting them for troubleshooting.

That is what we were afraid of. Looks like we are setting up a syslog server.
