Viewing logs

You can generate a list of events to view from your logs that are based on a collection of filter settings that you select.
If database errors occur when you view the logs that include a large amount of data, you might want to change the database timeout parameters.
If you get CGI or terminated process errors, you might want to change other timeout parameters.
Reports and logs always appear in the language that the management server was installed with. To display these when you use a remote
Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
