I’d like to extend the default log retention period from 4 to 52 weeks.
- 4 weeks is the default upstream retention period. We usually keep upstream defaults, but it would be acceptable only if I store logs externally IMO (that is typical in cloud infrastructures, but not for home/sme users)
- 52 weeks is the default retention period I apply to my customers. When I connect to my customers’ systems 4 weeks of past logs are not enough. To investigate a problem I need older information, as this community #support request demostrates: No login in eJabberd, IMAP and SSH
Absolutely true! You’re right and as @stephdl recalls we decided to not force every software to respect the default value.
I want to change only the default log retention period. Period.
I’d like to enforce the new default for new installations starting from 7.6.
What do you think?
