With continuous uploading, the ProxySG continuously streams new access log entries from the device memory to a remote server. Here, streaming refers to the real-time transmission of access log information. The SGOS software transmits
access log entries using the specified client, such as FTP client. A keep-alive is sent to keep the data connection open.
Continuous uploading allows you to view the latest logging information almost immediately, send log information to a log analysis tool for real-time processing and reporting, maintain the ProxySG performance by sending log information to
a remote server (avoiding disk writes), and save device disk space by saving log information on the remote server.
If the remote server is unavailable to receive continuous upload log entries, the SGOS software saves the log information on the device disk. When the remote server is available again, the appliance resumes continuous uploading.
Note: If you do not need to analyze the upload entries in real time, use periodic uploading because it is more reliable than continuous uploading.
