Sonicwall NSA240 AppFlow

I have enabled AppFlow Monitor on our Sonicwall NSA240 to see which URLs users are visiting. I wondered how much data it actually retains/logs? There doesn't seem to be a setting for the size of log or any information on the default log size.
Also, has Sonicwall discontinued their AppFlow Server? It is not available in the Mysonicwall downloads?

Many thanks in advance...

Hi matedwards,

The appflow server is still a supported configuration as an external appflow server to support aggregate and individual unit reporting for single or multiple firewalls. In fact you need an external appflow server to store data as appflow is in real-time to 24-hour periods depending on the query ran.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Blue Street.. Got it 24hour real-time. I will see if I can still purchase Appflow license and Appflow server from Dell Sonicwall.
