    I have a similar request in that I have 3 home licenses (u25x u25xw and wrt1900acs). And what I have noticed is that periodically one of the hardware boxes just "locks" up. so a family member just power cycles the box and things move forward. My issue is can the logs and or DB be saved so I can figure out WHY this is happening. The current setup if I am understanding Untangle is the the OS ir running in RAM and all is lost after the reboot.

    Just another thought on the concept of untangle server / client model could server untangle FW be installed as a VM on a NAS or other server and have it gather the data?? This would allow multiple firewalls reporting trending and allow for a larger / longer collection of data.

    So if there is no means to add external storage what does it take to add it internally. And not allowing for external storage I hate to say is very limited in your scope. I have 4 days and my disk it now still complaining about space... And I have the HOME license so telling me to cal for support isn't an answer.

    Well I hooked up an external USB with a 500GB SSD and partitioned 1/2 of it as /var after moving log files and created another 2GB swap partition, etc over to it. It needed a few reboots be become clean, but seems to work just fine! Silly part is that the recommended disk size FROM UNTANGLE is 80GB!! And Untangle puts a miserable 24GB SSD in the u25x and u25xw units.. so it will run out of space and cause issues.

It would be great if I could configure UT to use my NAS so that I can report over a longer time period like 3 months, so that I could get soem decent trends on where bandwidth is going, application usage etc.
    I support that statement 100%. It would be real nice for the possibility to export logs to NAS (log server/receiving logs).

    That solution is fine for some people but I personally don't want to upload my log files to the cloud which data I don't own.

    A question, please. Being able to export the data for safekeeping is one thing, but being able to point Untangle to that data for reports/analysis seems to me to be another thing entirely. I'm not seeing Google Drive as a realistic solution in the latter case (if I'm following the Untangle documentation correctly, analyzing the data stored on Google Drive would amount to a tedious task for anything more than a day), but I'm not seeing export to NAS as a solution, either.

    Am I missing something?

    That's why we are requesting this solution to be implemented in Untangle.
    But I don't understand your question entirely. I would like my reports/events data (log files) to be received by log server on my Synology NAS. But for the users who doesn't own a NAS device should have the ability/solution to export event data to the second HDD or external USB device. The most important thing is to lower the disk space (if you have small SSD or HDD > 25-120Gb).

    That report data is useless without Untangle's report viewer, and it's not a bunch of flat files it's a SQL database. If you need more space for more logs, you need a larger disk. That's the design of the product. Otherwise just remove the reports module and go without any logging at all. You can't just redirect this stuff elsewhere, and USB storage is too slow to keep up.
