Log Receiver Service tab

Use the Log Receiver Service tab to manage the Defender Log Receiver service. This service retrieves log files from the Defender Security Servers to the Defender Management Portal computer. The Defender Management Portal uses the retrieved log files to display authentication statistics and Defender Security Server warning messages and logs.

Start  Starts the Defender Log Receiver service. This button is only available when the service is stopped.
Communication port  Specifies the port on which the Defender Log Receiver Service connects to the Defender Security Servers. The default port is TCP 13131. The Defender Management Portal automatically creates a rule in Windows Firewall to allow traffic on port specified in this text box. The rule is automatically updated when you change the port number.
DSS log cache size limit (MB)  Specifies the maximum size of the Defender Security Server log cache (.dat) file that is located on each Defender Security Server. The default maximum file size is 1000 MB. When the specified maximum file size is reached, older contents in the .dat file are overwritten. For more information, see Defender Security Server log cache.
Log Receiver Service database size limit (MB)  Specifies the maximum size of each Log Receiver Service database (.sdf) file that stores log data from the corresponding Defender Security Server. A separate .sdf file is created on the Defender Management Portal computer for each Defender Security Server. The default maximum size set for each .sdf file is 1000 MB. For more information, see Log Receiver Service database.
