dumb question - where is this 7 day setting? i can't find mine.
i did do an extract into Excel of Syslog events from my NetPerfMon database and I only have seven days worth. my volume is light compared to yours - only 11,000 events in seven days.
looking at the Message ID number in the Excel column it appears we've processed over 400,000 Syslog messages since that first device starting sending Syslogs to Solarwinds.
however, i will soon be adding many more devices to this and would be interested in your solution and also increasing mine to 31 days - even longer would be great to me.
in the Syslog Viewer-> File -> Settings-> General tab
