DTAM060 - McAfee VirusScan On-Demand scan log file size must be restricted and be configured to at least 10MB - bLimitSize


While logging is imperative to forensic analysis, logs could grow to the point of impacting disk space on the system. In order to avoid the risk of logs growing to the size of impacting the operating system, the log size will be restricted, but must also be large enough to retain forensic value.


From the ePO server console System Tree, select the Systems tab, select the asset to be checked, select Actions, select Agent, and select Modify Tasks on a Single System. From the list of available tasks in the Task Name column, with the assistance of the ePO SA, identify the weekly on demand client scan task. In the same row as the client scan task under review, under the Task Type column, ensure it is an 'On Demand scan' and in the Status column, ensure that the status is 'Enabled'. In the Task Name column, select the weekly on demand task. Under the Reports tab, locate the 'Log file size:' label. Select the 'Limit the size of log file' option. For the 'Maximum log file size:', select a value of 10MB or more. Select Save.
