Log Storage

Logs can consume significant amount of disk space. The total log size depends on the log retention policy and daily change rate in your organizations. If the management server runs out of space, Veeam Backup for Salesforce will fail to run. To provide stable operation of the product, consider the following:

  • Before you deploy Veeam Backup for Salesforce, create a dedicated partition for log storage and allocate to it at least 10 % of the file and data space used in Salesforce. For example, if you have 200 GB of files and 300 GB of data in your Salesforce organization, you must allocate at least 50 GB to this partition. Then, you must mount the partition to the /var/log/vbsf/ folder.
  • After you deploy Veeam Backup for Salesforce, specify for how long you want to retain the product logs. To do that, modify the logging.backup.file.retention, logging.restore.file.retention and logging.backend.file.retention parameter values as described in section Configuring Advanced Settings.
