Discussion

In order to ensure network devices have a sufficient storage capacity in which to write the audit logs, they need to be able to allocate audit record storage capacity. The task of allocating audit record storage capacity is usually performed during initial device setup if it is modifiable. The value for the organization-defined audit record storage requirement will depend on the amount of storage available on the network device, the anticipated volume of logs, the frequency of transfer from the network device to centralized log servers, and other factors.

Fix Text

Configure the BIG-IP appliance to use a properly configured syslog server to allocate audit record storage capacity in accordance with organization-defined audit record storage requirements.

Check Content

Verify the BIG-IP appliance is configured to off-load audit records to a remote syslog server that allocates audit record storage capacity in accordance with organization-defined audit record storage requirements. Navigate to the BIG-IP System manager >> System >> Logs >> Configuration >> Remote Logging. Verify a syslog destination is configured that allocates audit record storage capacity in accordance with organization-defined audit record storage requirements. If audit record store capacity is not allocated in accordance with organization-defined audit record storage requirements, this is a finding.
