The system log is a log containing system information on events, including system error entries.

The system log is stored in a local database for each server. You can set access to the system log for a user group in the Users tab under Settings (see the section titled Configuring user permissions).

To configure storage of the system log and metadata:

  1. Go to Settings  Options  User interface (12).
  2. In the Period field, enter the amount of days to store the system log in the Server’s database and to store metadata in the object trajectory database (3). 0 corresponds to no limits. The maximum time is 1000 days. 


    If you have less than 5 GB of free disk space, the Object Tracking DB is overwritten - new data records over the oldest data records.

  3. In the appropriate field, enter the amount of hours after which outdated events will be purged from the system log (4).

    Outdated events are events that have been stored in the system log for a period greater than that indicated in step 2.


    The object trajectory database is purged of video recordings that have been stored for more than the specified storage period:

    1. Every 12 hours after Axxon Next is started.

    2. Every time you start the MomentQuest forensic search tool (see Forensic Search for Fragments (MomentQuest)).

    If the camera is not recording when DB is cleaned up, then its recordings are preserved irrespective of their timestamp.

  4. The metadata database can be stored on NAS if necessary (by default, it is located locally as set during  Installation). Do the following:

    1. Enter a path to the network destination for metadata database (5). 

    2. Enter the user name and password (6). The user must have permissions to access the NAS. 


      If you clear the path to NAS, metadata will be stored in the local database again

  5. Click the Apply button.

Configuration of the system log is now complete.
