Hi all,

There have some question about the Event Log

  • what is the data length of Event log?
  • what is the lager size of Event log?
  • Event log will or will not delected automatically?
  • If not, is that need to housekeeping for event log to prevent data overload

Thanks.

The event log is also stored in the root directory, visible from SPI. It is taken care of automatically.
