Set the Diagnostic Log Level

You can select the level of diagnostic logging that appears in the log messages generated by your Firebox. The available levels, from lowest to highest are:

  • Off — No diagnostic log messages are sent for this category.
  • Error — (Default setting) This level includes log messages for serious errors that cause a service or process on the Firebox to terminate.
  • Warning — This level includes details of abnormal conditions that help to explain behavioral process issues, as well as the information from the Error level.
  • Information — This level includes details of successful operation for log messages, as well as the information from the Error and Warning levels.
  • Debug — This level includes detailed log messages for all log levels. Use only with direction from a WatchGuard technical support representative.

WatchGuard does not recommend that you select the highest logging level (Debug) unless a technical support representative directs you to do so while you troubleshoot a problem. When you use the highest diagnostic log level, the log file can fill up very quickly and performance of the Firebox can be reduced.
