Access to Scan and Agent logs from the backend

Hi

Does anyone know if there's a way to access the agent and scan logs through the backend?

I've got a large number of devices that I need to analyse their logs looking for common issues.
If I can help it, I'd rather not look at them indvidually in the GUI.

Thanks

Hi,

You cannot access them (that I am aware of) You could write a script to scrape the device manager for each device you are interested. It's not too complex.

Just run this URL for every device you're interested in:

https://ddmimachine/nm/devicelog/scan_log.pcgi?device=10.1.1.1


("Mark Zuckerberg" does a great job describing how to do it in the movie "The Social Network" :-))

Thanks Matthew.

My knowledge of PHP scripting is very limited but I'll explore the scrape script option and hopefully find a way to automate the URL generation and to caputre the script output into a file.
