The logging settings determine the behavior for NetBackup logging on the master server, media server, and the clients:
Overall logging level or global logging level for all NetBackup processes.
Overrides for the specific processes that use legacy logging.
Logging levels for the services that use unified logging.
On clients, the logging level for database applications.
Log retention settings for NetBackup and for NetBackup Vault (if it is installed).
All NetBackup processes use either unified logging or legacy logging. You can set a global or a unique logging level for certain process and services. Retention levels limit the size of the log files or (for the master server) the number of days the logs are kept. If you use NetBackup Vault, you can select separate logging retention settings for that option.
It is recommended that you do not use symbolic links or hard links inside legacy log folders.

The logs can consume a large amount of disk space, so do not keep the logs any longer than necessary. The default is 28 days.
If NetBackup Vault is installed, select the number of days to keep the Vault session directories, or select.
