Notice
  • The free trial edition of Cloud Firewall does not support the log analysis feature. If you are using the free trial edition, the Cloud Firewall console does not display the log storage capacity. For information about how to enable the log analysis feature, see Enable the Log Analysis feature.
  • If you do not increase the log storage capacity when it is used up, Cloud Firewall stops writing new logs to the Logstore of the log analysis feature. Existing logs in the Logstore are retained. Logs are stored for a maximum of 180 days before they are automatically deleted. If the feature has expired and you have not renewed the subscription within seven days, all logs in the Logstore are deleted. Deleted logs cannot be recovered.

Subscription duration

The subscription duration of the log analysis feature is the same as that of the Cloud Firewall instance.
  • New purchase: When you buy a Cloud Firewall instance with the log analysis feature enabled, the price of this feature is calculated based on the subscription duration of the instance.
  • Upgrade: When you upgrade a Cloud Firewall instance with the log analysis feature enabled, the price of this feature is calculated based on the remaining duration (in minutes) of the existing Cloud Firewall instance.

Service expiration

If your Cloud Firewall instance expires, the log analysis feature also expires.
  • After the feature expires, Cloud Firewall stops writing logs to the Logstore.
  • Logs are retained for seven days after the expiration. If you renew the subscription within seven days, you can continue to use the feature. Otherwise, all logs are deleted.
