About increasing the disk space on the server for client log data

A configuration that uploads a large volume of client log data to the server at frequent intervals can cause disk space problems on the server. If you must upload a large volume of client log data, you may have to adjust some default values to avoid these space problems. As you deploy to clients, you should monitor the space on the server in the log insertion directory and adjust these values as needed.
The default directory where the logs are converted to .dat files and then written to the database is in the following default location:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\
Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
\data\inbox\log
.
To adjust the values that control the space available on the server, you must change these values in the Windows registry. The Windows registry keys that you need to change are located on the server in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SEPM.
The following table lists the Windows registry keys and their default values and describes what they do.

Specifies the space that is allotted for the directory where log files are converted to .dat files before they are stored in the database.
The default value is 8 GB.
MinDataFreeSpace

The default value is 200 MB.
