Discussion

It is critical for the appropriate personnel to be aware if a system is at risk of failing to process logs as required. Log processing failures include software/hardware errors, failures in the log capturing mechanisms, and log storage capacity being reached or exceeded. Notification of the storage condition will allow administrators to take actions so that logs are not lost. This requirement can be met by configuring the application server to utilize a dedicated logging tool that meets this requirement.

Configure the application server to provide an alert to the SA and ISSO when allocated log record storage volume reaches 75% of maximum log record storage capacity.

Check Content

Review the configuration settings to determine if the application server logging system provides a warning to the SA and ISSO when 75% of allocated log record storage volume is reached. If designated alerts are not sent, or the application server is not configured to use a dedicated logging tool that meets this requirement, this is a finding.
