Cisco ASA able to log security events internally for up to 48 hours without the aid of external syslog server?

Is there a way to quickly view logs in an ASA for the past 24 to 48 hours without using some kind of external syslog server?  Also sort of related, do you know if Spiceworks can act as a syslog server for an ASA?  I read that the Firepower model may be able to log these events, is this true. if so how?

Thanks for your help and insight.

hostname(config)# logging enable
 hostname(config)# logging asdm 2
 hostname(config)# logging asdm-buffer-size 200
 hostname(config)# show logging

Open in new window

The buffer size allows the host to keep 200 messages in this case.
