How do I configure an FTP server for uploading CacheFlow access logs?

<< Back to Knowledge Search



CacheFlow can maintain an access log for each HTTP request and store the log in one of three formats (common, Squid-compatible, and custom). You can use a variety of reporting utilities to read these formats.

To upload CacheFlow access logs to an FTP server, go to the CLI root configure menu and type:


This changes the prompt to:
CF_Name#(config access-log)
Then, enable the FTP client type and specify the FTP server for uploads.


CF_Name> enable
Enable Password:
CF_Name #config terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CTRL-Z.
