View Old log files in Bluecoat reporter

Hi,

I have installed reporter 9.4.2 and as the limit size of the log lines is set for 50,000,000 for the Standard Version. We need to delete the logs older than five days.

By this I am losing the logs older than 5 days. Instead of deleting the log files, I could move the log files to a different location on the hard disk.

What I want to know that is there any way that I can view those moved log files on the reporter.

I hope you understood my concern.

You can use either or both of renaming files and using subdirectories
MS-DOS is useful enough for this, combine with scheduler for .cmd
A past favorite of mine is to have job run daily to move file to directories named by weekday.
From there they can also be picked up periodically and copied to separate place, perhaps gather them to a server where they are backed up by month.
Part of process could be to store as both .log and .csv (copy command) to same or different location
Some like to add date information to files saved
To view files, select their location (subdir) then select by filename.
You 'may' retain the files in the same directory, but that makes them more difficult to find, locate, retain, and protect.

Change the directory before selecting file to open

in Reporter create a new database with a source of that temporary directory. Have Reporter read the logs into the database
