Log Management Collection Schedules

Alert Logic updated the appearance of the Alert Logic console, though all functionality remains. If you chose to use the beta navigation, note that the documentation below describes the current Alert Logic console. For more information about the new navigation, see Dashboard Navigation Menu.

When you create a Log Management policy for the first time, you can create collection schedules. Collection schedules allow you to black out periods when you do not need to collect log sources. You can create new collection schedules for a policy at any time. However, you cannot delete or update existing schedules.

For more information about policy creation, see Log Management Policies.

To access the Log Management collection schedules, click CONFIGURATION, click Log Management, and then click Policies. Click the corresponding policy tab to find the policy for the schedule you want to create.
