All the traffic that passes through Cloud Firewall is recorded in logs, and the logs are displayed on the Log Audit page. The logs are classified into traffic logs, event logs, and operation logs. You can use the logs to audit all traffic in real time and detect suspicious traffic.
Cloud Firewall provides the log analysis feature. This feature allows you to specify a log storage duration that ranges from 7 to 365 days. If your business needs to meet the requirements for classified protection and compliance, we recommend that you enable the log analysis feature. For more information about the billing of the log analysis feature, see Billing.
