Configuration parameters

The Foglight® Management Server stores its configuration parameters in configuration files within the Foglight directory on the Management Server's file system. When Foglight is launched, the parameters are read and cached internally; the configuration files on disk are not re-read until the Management Server restarts. This allows modification of the configuration files while Foglight is running without affecting real-time processing.

Audit log

From the Foglight® Administration Console, users can select security and change audit logs for a specific time period and display those logs in the Audit Viewer.

The View Audit Information dashboard allows you to review these logs and to filter them to show information for a specific time span.

Foglight® masks password entries with asterisks to prevent them from being displayed. Foglight also masks agent properties that are marked as sensitive.
