Enabling logs for section rules records information on packets for all of the rules in a section. Depending on the number of rules in a section, a typical firewall section will generate large amounts of log information and can affect performance.
Logs are stored in the /var/log/dfwpktlogs.log file on vSphere ESXi and KVM hosts.
- Select Firewall in the navigation panel.
- Click the General tab for L3 rules or the Ethernet tab for L2 rules.
- Click the menu icon in the first column of the section and select Enable all logs or Disable all logs.
- Click Save.
