        Yes a similar list as that used for report data retention would be great. We'd only want to keep a few weeks worth of most of the system logs on the UTM but we'd keep 3 months worth of web filter logs on the UTM. We're configured to delete older files as neccessary to maintain log disk space so I manually delete system logs to try to keep UTM from deleting web filter logs.

        We have a requirement for retention of 6 Months of activity, but the current choices only allow us to select 1 Year so we have to keep 6 months of data we are not interested in.

        An option to select a Delete Logs after custom with a text box entry to allow a number of days to be retained seems like a very simple option to add.

        At the very least a 6 months option should be trivial to add to the drop down list.

        ...or at least more variation in what is offered in the drop down list.

        There are too many options for short periods and then nothing between 3 months and 1 year.
