archive (All System Log Files)
<binary-data | no-binary-data> <world-readable | no-world-readable>;
Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.
Configure archiving properties for all system log files.
files number—Maximum number of archived log files to retain. When the Junos
OS logging utility has written a defined maximum amount of data to
a log file
logfile, it closes the file, compresses it, and renames it
logfile.0.gz (the amount of
data is determined by the size statement at this hierarchy
level). The utility then opens and writes to a new file called
logfile. When the new file
reaches the maximum size, the
logfile.0.gz file is renamed to
logfile.1.gz, and the new file is closed,
compressed, and renamed
logfile.0.gz. By default, the logging facility creates
up to ten archive files in this manner. Once the maximum number of
archive files exists, each time the active log file reaches the maximum
size, the contents of the oldest archive file are lost (overwritten
by the next oldest file).
Range: 1 through 1000
Default: 10 files
amount of data that the Junos OS logging utility writes to a log file
logfile before archiving it
(closing it, compressing it, and changing its name to
logfile.0.gz). The utility
then opens and writes to a new file called
Syntax: x k to specify the number of kilobytes, x m for the number of megabytes, or x g for the number of gigabytes
Range: 64 KB through 1 GB
128 KB for EX Series switches
1 MB for M Series, MX Series, and T Series routers, OCX Series, and the QFX3500 switch, and SRX and vSRX series devices.
10 MB for TX Matrix and TX Matrix Plus routers
binary-data | no-binary-data—Mark file as containing binary data. This allows proper archiving of binary files, such as WTMP files (login records for UNIX based systems)..
world-readable | no-world-readable—Grant all users permission to read archived log files, or restrict the permission only to the root user and users who have the Junos OS maintenance permission.
